Event description

Description

Melbourne’s six year place atop the Economist’s Global Liveability Ranking puts the city in a uniquely positive position. So what’s there to think about? With every year, the position becomes increasingly precarious. With growing pains, the “world’s most liveable city” requires visionary thinking to maintain its liveability for its citizens and to be able to share its knowledge with the world.

The Living Cities Forum 2017 brings together leading international and local architects and design thinkers to consider Melbourne’s challenges, opportunities and possible futures, and asks what lessons can be learned from Melbourne’s rise. Is the city’s ‘liveability’ born out of fortunate of geology, geography, climate, politics, and culture or a series of considered decisions and curious accidents?

Viewing the city through this lens of liveability, the forum explores the dichotomy of densification and expansion, and the push-and-pull of preserving Melbourne’s unique identity with its evolving future as a 24-hour metropolis. What is a smart, creative and healthy city? Is a city truly liveable when it is only liveable for some? Rather than rest on its past success, Melbourne must begin preparing for its uncharted future.

Join us for the inaugural Living Cities Forum 2017, a day-long platform with an enduring legacy, a space for the exchange of global design ideas.

The Living Cities Forum 2017 is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria. It is presented by the Naomi Milgrom Foundation in partnership with Open House Melbourne with the assistance of Melbourne School of Design, Monash University and RMIT University.
