Steven Bird organized a Workshop on Technology and Wellbeing in the Top End in Darwin in April. Steven, Chris Lawrence and Greg Wadley of the University of Melbourne traveled to Darwin to work with representatives of Indigenous groups, researchers from Charles Darwin University and Batchelor Institute, and local and interstate app developers, to explore possibilities for technology to improve health and wellbeing in northern Australia.
