In this study, we explore, through co-creation, how Australian cities might incorporate a people-centred data governance ecosystem. We use CLDs (1) during interviews to elicit perspectives from various stakeholders in cities regarding the current state of data governance and (2) during workshops for solution ideation. In this work we focus on the multiplicity of perspectives regarding DG in Australian cities. We aim to co-create a conceptual model of the status quo of data governance and explore solutions to achieve people-centred DG. An interactive visualisation of the model will showcase the diversity of perspectives, delineate the power dynamics underpinning data governance in Australian cities in an accessible manner, and portray people-centred solutions.
