Event description

Description

Can good design solve Sydney's urban heat dilemma?
Calling all city shapers, place makers and urban innovators!

We’re inviting you to a one day masterclass to explore how we can tackle Sydney’s urban heat dilemma. Every year, Sydney swelters through its summers, and they are getting hotter. We need to cool our urban spaces and create a more liveable city.

This event is essential for leading planners, developers, builders, architects, urban designers and professionals working with our built environment.
