Virtual Event: Building Green and Sustainable Cities

Planning liveable futures for ever-changing communities

Tuesday, 16 March 2021
9:00 AM- 11:10 AM AEDT

Agenda Overview:

Urban infrastructure plays a key functional and social role in communities, and the development of green and sustainable cities will ensure the economic, social and environmental wellbeing of citizens and their spaces.

Facilitating collaboration between agencies is key when creating a more compact, precinct and transit oriented urban form for the future. Citizens need spaces that are agile enough to accommodate demographic change, and this can only be achieved with sufficient ‘buy in’ from all parties.

Join us at the Public Sector Network’s complimentary ‘Building Green and Sustainable Cities’ – a virtual event that will promote an integrated, inter-governmental approach to urban development planning by facilitating knowledge sharing and collaboration between agencies.
