This paper reports on a research project investigating issues in the design and implementation of a knowledge society in New Zealand. For New Zealand to become a knowledge society requires other kinds of understanding both of global change and local distinctiveness than we find in current studies which take large-scale advanced societies as their implicit model. This paper elaborates the report's emphasis on cultural knowledge and the role of the city and digital technologies in the formation of the knowledge society.
