11th Liveable Cities Conference 2018
The 2018 Liveable Cities Conference was held from Monday 16th – Tuesday 17th July at Pullman Melbourne on the Park.
Over two days, professionals from varied disciplines in sustainability, planning and development including government agencies, waste management professionals, academics, planning professionals and engineers gathered to discuss the challenges, solutions and developments taking place in our cities.
Continuing to explore the liveability of our metropolitan and regional urban centres, this year’s conference placed emphasis on who is leading innovative renewal strategies, the importance of collaboration and co-design and what aspects are important to sustainable economic, social and environmental successes.
With a warm conference welcome by the City of Melbourne’s Lord Mayor Sally Capp, two full days of inspiring presentations and a successful debut fish-bowl discussion, this year’s conference was a successful celebration of creating healthy and sustainable cities for current and future living.
A huge thank you to our keynotes, presenters, exhibitors and sponsors for making the 2018 Liveable Cities Conference a great success.
