Melbourne to host 8th Making Cities Liveable conference

The world’s most liveable city, Melbourne is set to host the 8th Making Cities Liveable Conference on 6 - 7 July 2015, continuing our support for improving the quality of life in our capitals and major regional cities.

Australians enjoy some of the most liveable cities in the world. However the future and liveability of our cities face a number of challenges in the next 10 years. Delegates and speakers are invited to come together as we address these issues of increase populations demands, affordable and adequate housing, transport and mobility, job disbursement, resource management, public health and planning for an ageing population.

“Last year’s conference attracted more than 250 delegates and abstract submissions from 20 countries; a sure sign that our conference continues to be seen as a leading industry event with an inclusive, engaging and contemporary program” says Mr Peter Sugg, CEO, Association for Sustainability Business Inc.

With three-quarters of Australians living in 18 major cities, the way cities are developed is vitally important to accommodate future growth and change. The conference will examine the challenges, opportunities, trends and issues currently facing cities and future development.

“This conference, now in its 8th year, has evolved as a unique space for practitioners and stakeholders to share and reflect” says Ms Paula Drayton, Director, Resource Advisory Pty Ltd and Conference Chair.

“Opportunities are available if wish to attend, present a concurrent sessions, share case studies, run workshops or present a poster” she continues.

This conference will indeed be an important event to attend.
