Delivering a Sustainable Future City

City leaders met to work with leading thinkers to develop innovative solutions for re-designing precincts so that they are great places to live and work, and are also adaptive to the changes in energy and water demands – from renewing town centres or high streets, to re-designing community precincts and parks or new or alternative transport possibilities.
The three day forum was led by experts in urban re-design and sustainable development in Australia and the United States.
