The 10th Making Cities Liveable Conference will be held at the Hotel Grand Chancellor in Brisbane on Monday 10 and Tuesday 11 July 2017. This successful conference grows with importance each year as a platform for innovative discussion on the approach to follow and the actions to undertake in making our cities liveable and healthy urban communities.
Following the commitment by world leaders to adopt the New Urban Agenda and thereby setting a new global standard for sustainable urban development, the 2017 Liveable Cities Conference aims to focus more deeply on key areas addressing how we plan, manage and live in our cities. We are also looking beyond major capital cities to successful liveability in regional centres.
In addition and to acknowledge the release of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals to transform our world and in particular Goal 11 “make cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable” the two day Liveable Cities Conference will be followed by the one day Safe Cities Conference taking place on Wednesday 12 July 2017.
