11th Liveable Cities Conference 2018
16 – 17 July 2018, Pullman Melbourne on the Park.
Now in its 11th year, this Conference will continue to explore the liveability of our metropolitan and regional urban centres, with an emphasis on who is leading the renewal, the importance of collaboration and co-design and what aspects are important to implement strategies that result in sustainable economic, social and environmental successes. The discussion at the 2018 Conference will focus on sustainable transport solutions, greening and redesign of cities, renewing regional areas, integrating community decisions, government policy, health and wellbeing and strategies for environment implementation.
We invite you to be part of the voice in making change.
Over two days, listen to and be inspired by presenters from varied disciplines including policy makers, sustainability practitioners, government agencies, waste management professionals, academics & researchers, planning professionals, social planners, town planners, place makers, councils and engineers.
