Event overview

Australia’s economic and social prosperity hinges on our ability to manage cities well.

The global megatrend of urbanisation is playing out in the Greater Sydney metropolitan area and is set to continue well into the future. However, ensuring that Greater Sydney’s urbanisation does not come at a cost to prosperity and liveability requires careful planning at all levels of Government and industry stakeholders.

Cities that are drivers of economic growth require access to knowledge-based jobs, greater housing options, and varying modes of connected infrastructure.

This event will examine:

  • The hallmarks of productive working cities that are themselves drivers of economic growth;
  • The role of business, universities, and government in forward planning for a more productive Greater Sydney area; and
  • Catalysts for business investment that create knowledge-based, globally integrated jobs.
