This event promises a fascinating finish to the Sustainable Cities Round Table series this year with the theme: visioning a sustainable urban future. The speakers will present their own design visions and also talk of the important role of visioning in business and government sectors.

Speakers include:
Melanie Dodd, Lecturer, Architecture & Design, RMIT University

Prof Catherin Bull, Associate Dean, Architecture, Building & Planning, University of Melbourne

There will also be a presentation by Francois Jegou, Director of the Brussels-based design research company, Solutioning.

“François Jégou also teaches as visiting professor at the Faculty of Design of the Politecnico in Milan and La Cambre School of Visual Art in Brussels and was the co-producer with Ezio Manzini of the exhibition Sustainable Everyday. The picture that emerged from this project, says Jegou, was that of a ‘multi-local city…a city in the shape of a network of places endowed with totally new characteristics”. Jegou currently works with Manzini on the Emude project looking at the role and actions of creative communities in defining new models for sustainable living”.
