Living Cities Forum

  • Deakin Edge, Federation Square Flinders Street Melbourne, VIC, 3004 Australia (map)

In 2019, the Living Cities Forum will address the future needs of current Australians, future Australians, and the living systems with which they will cohabitate.

By 2050, the population of Australia’s major cities is predicted to nearly double, while global warming and its associated effects will alter our urban and regional environments. How we accommodate this unprecedented population growth and respond to climate change is currently the subject of vigorous political debate.

The Forum's speakers will identify the key challenges of the next decades, from densification to de-growth, innovation to adaptive re-use, and help us to transform plans into decisive action.
