Planning, designing and building sustainable cities in a climate of change

Unpack critical factors in successful precinct development through 8 major project case studies to realise positive economic, social and environmental outcomes for your community 
The outcomes of the recent COP26 Summit have sent out a call to action to countries across the globe to adopt a new approach to urban planning and precinct development. As seen in the nation's commitment to delivering net zero emission by 2050, the development of our cities and places post COVID-19 is set to take a new direction.   
Join us for the Sustainable Urban Planning and Precinct Development Summit in exploring sustainable planning and delivery of liveable cities and regions that will outperform in the future. Tackle key challenges facing the industry through:  
  • Utilising the latest in technology, innovation and research to achieve sustainability in major project delivery and transition to a circular economy 
  • Enhancing planning, designing and development strategies to deliver precincts which balance economic, cultural, social, and environmental sustainability  
  • Applying placemaking principles to co-create connected, healthy and productive places fit for future generations  
Gain insights into Australia’s progressive cities and regions through attending the sustainable project case studies from Infrastructure Australia, Brisbane City Council, North East Link Project and more.
