Presented by Dr. Lucy Cameron & Dr. George Quezada of Australia’s CSIRO Data61 Research Centre
Urbanisation is an accelerating force in many countries – including Australia. There will be many challenges for growing urban environments going forward, but also opportunities to design more efficient and functional cities. New platform technologies, multi-modal transport designs, household take-up of renewable energy and local water capture, the growth of co-working centres, green corridors, and a renewed interest in liveable environments are providing great opportunities to boost innovation, reduce energy consumption, increase social connections and create happier and safer environments for people to live and grow. This presentation will review a number innovations that will change city living in many places over the next 5-10 years.
