Event description
How Regenerative Urban Design & Placemaking Will Restore Us

About this event

Regenerative Design is mooted as the Next Big Thing, but what does it actually look, feel and sound like? How can it reduce negative impacts of humans on place? Where in the world is it happening at scale, who’s leading the way, what are the hurdles to progress and innovations needed to overcome them? What are the health and wellbeing implications if we get this right (or wrong)?

This half-day symposium unpacks not only the vision and promise of Regenerative Placemaking but also the challenges it presents and innovations it demands of us. Explore future-focussed city-shaping with four thought leaders at the intersection of urban design, Indigenous thinking, research, planning and government. Topics include:

  • Bringing Indigenous thinking to future-focused placemaking
  • Reducing human impact on our cities and neighbourhoods
  • Designing future work for health and wellbeing
  • Reconceiving our towns and communities for connection and liveability

Join Dean Landy, Partner at ClarkeHopkinsClarke Architects and Senior Urban Designer Hayley Hooper as they host four highly visual 30-minute presentations culminating in a panel discussion moderated by one of Australia’s leading journalists.

This event is part of the inaugural Innovation Week at Melbourne Connect, a multi-day festival celebrating the people, projects, and possibilities becoming reality from within the University of Melbourne's new innovation precinct.
