Workshop to explore urban future

An international panel of experts from academia, industry and public authorities will gather at UOW in February for an insightful workshop event hosted by the SMART Infrastructure Facility.

The Urban Liveability Workshop, part of SMART’s Executive Development Program, will encourage discussion and debate about the concept and measurement of urban liveability and its role in urban infrastructure planning.

The event will provide an opportunity to look at the complex interactions between urban planning and social responses. Based on pioneering work developed in Europe and Australia, the workshop will explore objective and subjective factors that make urban environments more liveable.

The workshop aims at better defining the concept of liveability and its role in urban infrastructure planning and will focus on the key themes of: international perspectives, demographics, urban development and systems, dynamic modelling and surveying perceived liveability.

Hosted by Professor Pascal Perez, the workshop will include presentations from eminent experts in the field such as Program Director, World Bank Singapore Mr Kamran Khan, Executive Director Major Cities Unit, Department of Infrastructure and Transport Ms Dorte Ekelund, University College London’s Professor Brian Collins and University of Adelaide’s Professor Graeme Hugo.

The Urban Liveability Workshop will be held at the SMART Infrastructure Facility, UOW on Thursday February 14. For registration and enquiries click here or email smart-facility@uow.edu.au
