Why is it so important to plan for 2060 now?
By 2060 Australia’s population will have reached 40,000,000. Two-thirds of us will live in one of the four largest cities: Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane. Determining what those cities look like will require some seriously creative blue-sky thinking.
What can be done to keep cities sprawling from ever outwards? How can technology be used to create a better place to live? And will the COVID pandemic leave a lasting impression on our future city blueprints?
Specialists in built environment, urban design, architecture, town planning and tech come together to imagine the cities of our future. How we live, work, commute and travel. How we manage energy, waste and water. And, most importantly, how today’s science, technology and planning can contribute to a better way of life and shape the cities of the future.
