Dianne Moy, VEIL, & Kathleen Turner, Architect student, SKM/ University of Melbourne spoke about their visions of “Mobility & the Extended School System 2032” at the recent Sustainable Cities Round Table, 17 March. Their topic illustrated the importance of a systems approach when considering urban sustainability, exploring the connection between transport, the environment and education. The Extended School System model is part of the Victorian Eco-Innovation Lab (VEIL) project, based at the Australian Centre for Science, Innovation and Society (ACSIS), the University of Melbourne. VEIL exists to change the landscape of expectations of a sustainable future and open-up the eco-innovation space in the Victorian economy by conducting interdisciplinary research and constructive speculation with creative engagement with university design programs to re-invent the future.
