MAV convene city planning conference

A conference exploring how planners can build more inclusive and sustainable cities post-COVID-19 will be staged in Melbourne next month.

The Municipal Association of Victoria (MAV) is convening the Smart Urban Futures Conference  which will cover five themes:

  • Transport integration and better street design;
  • Climate change response, including how to deliver emissions reduction through travel mode shift to walking, cycling and public transport;
  • Fostering more equitable communities, including gender equality; and
  • Pandemic response – building back better with liveable cities

Keynote speakers include Matthew Baldwin (Deputy director, General European Coordinator for Road Safety and Sustainable Mobility, European Commission), Helge Hillnhutter (Associate Professor, Norwegian University of Science and Technology), and Ellie Cosgrave (Director, Publica UK).

The hybrid event will be held on 5-6 May.
