‘Joining the dots’ is a smart infrastructure podcast series that draws on the insights of smart thinkers responsible for creating environments that care, as well as those benefitting from them.

All of us desire to live in safe and healthy environments where we can fulfil our dreams and aspirations. We demand the best for our communities, for our environment, for ourselves, and for future generations.

To realise these desires and dreams, we need to be smart in our approach – how we build the spaces we live and work in, how we use and share resources, and how we innovate and apply technology.

We need smart thinkers that can connect the dots to create environments that care.

Hosted by Imogen Foulkes, the podcast series ‘Joining the dots’ brings together inspiring perspectives from these smart thinkers as they share their smart ideas and solutions. Listen in...
