There are huge economic, social and environmental opportunities from treating our data as a national strategic asset. The Data Futures Partnership has been created to help lead the development of a data-use system that will create value for all New Zealanders by making better use of our data.
The Partnership is an independent group that is funded by Government to work with all New Zealanders to create the right systems, settings and conditions to allow our data to be put to work making New Zealand a better place.
Our Data Our Way is an opportunity for New Zealanders to have a say on how personal data is used and shared.
Anyone can take part by using a new online tool which explores people’s comfort levels in different data use situations.There is also a nationwide series of workshops, involving hundreds of New Zealanders, taking place throughout February.
Try out the new online tool here.
Our Data Our Way will help define when New Zealanders are comfortable sharing their data and having it used. Online participants also learn how their views compare with other New Zealanders.
