Event description
The 'Placemaking for Climate Adaptation' summit explores how we can prepare for future climate impacts and create more resilient cities.

About this Event

Have you ever wondered how just 2 degrees of warming will change our cities and regions? How we will cope with more frequent extreme weather events, such as flooding, sea-level rises or cyclones? What does this mean for future placemaking? And what role will planners, designers, architects, engineers and ecologists play?

Explore these issues with The University of Queensland at the 'Placemaking for Climate Adaptation' summit on Wednesday 20 November 2019.

Engage with a diverse mix of policy-makers, industry leaders, community builders, entrepreneurs and designers and gain actionable insights on how we can prepare for future climate impacts and create more resilient cities and regions in Queensland.

Start the day with a morning of provocative keynote and expert talks. Our keynote speaker, Halvard Dalheim, is one of Australia's pre-eminent strategic planners, having led major city strategies and teams in both Melbourne and Sydney. He is a creative futurist, anticipating the dramatic change processes facing Australian cities and regions.

In the afternoon, you will be invited to participate to collaborative workshops featuring two leading experts of placemaking and climate change adaptation, John Mongard, John Mongard Landscape Architects, and James Davidson, James Davidson Architect, who will teach new adaptation knowledge, processes and techniques that can be applied across many places.

The summit is part of the Placemaking Sandbox Project, funded by The Myer Foundation.
