Description

Rising sea-levels and storm surge intensity, changes in temperature and precipitation, and an increase in extreme weather events such as bushfires, drought, heatwaves and high-intensity rainfall… 

How do we future proof the urban environment against environmental changes?

For infill, heat island effect is a real challenge. For greenfield, bushfire threats are a growing problem.

With temperatures increasing, how do we balance the need for housing a growing population and the need for more green space & better nature preservation? To prepare for the changes, will urban development practices need to undergo a major & fundamental shift, or can lots of small, practical adjustments deliver effective outcomes?

As a highly respected city planner who consults internationally on urban change, cities futures and strategic planning; urban futurist and former Lord Mayor of Adelaide, Stephen Yarwood will explore the relationships between climate change, development practices, technology, sustainability & future proofing our communities.

Sharing best practice case studies and innovative solutions, Stephen will share insights on what we should be doing now to combat the risks and what a truly resilient built environment looks like.

Following Stephen’s keynote presentation a panel discussion with industry leaders will further explore the challenges and opportunities for WA.
