Event – Introducing the Sustainable Cities Round Table/ Future Melbourne forum
The Sustainable Cities Round Table/ Future Melbourne forum was held last Wednesday, 12 September, at the University of Melbourne. Focusing specifically on aspects of urban water sustainability – an issue that’s hitting hard all over Australia – the evening provided a broad spectrum of the various approaches, methods and values of urban water. To my delight we even had some artists’ (Carolyn Lewen & Neil Stanyer – see a post about their work on this site) water-themed installation project on display during the forum! Professor Chris Ryan hosted the evening and facilitated discussion in a “Jenny Brockie-style” format in the latter part of the evening.
As this was a collaborated event with the University of Melbourne and the City of Melbourne as part of the Future Melbourne forums, comments made during this session will be added to the Melbourne 2010 plan.
