Event description

Description

Sydney Ideas co-presented with the Sydney Environment Institute

There are many dimensions to spatial inequality in Australia. This seminar will probe the uneven distribution of the country’s economic and environmental resources, with a particular focus on cities. What does residence in ‘hot Sydney’, mean for your life chances, for those of your children, and for the elderly in your community? How do poorer schools, less green space, fewer trees, reduced public transport, fewer libraries and areas of public airconditioned space work together to exacerbate inequality? How does ‘hot Sydney’ compare to life in suburbs with good health and transport infrastructure, more public space, moderating sea breezes and reduced levels of crime and risk?

Associate Professor Ollie Jay, Director of the Thermal Ergonomics Laboratory

Dr. Abby Mellick Lopes, School of Humanities and Communication Arts, Western Sydney University
