Project Description

Engaging Councils to increase openness and innovation through a card game! Based on the popular "Top Trump" game, we play council versus council to see who is the most innovative, most open and most livable!

Data Story

We summarise datasets from the ABS, metadata, world livability and innovation centres.

Data tells a story, even when it' s just top level summaries. By showcasing the comparative strengths and weaknesses of different councils, we hope to encourage them to improve.
