Collaborative, inclusive design has the power to reconnect people to each other, their communities, cities and culture — past, present and future.
In the past few years there’s been a fundamental shift in how we view and experience the world.
We’re all reflecting on what’s truly important — reassessing our relationships with our workplaces, communities and cities, rediscovering the power of shared cultural and nature-based experiences and prioritising the health of our planet.
Over the next few months, we’ll bring together ideas on reconnecting people, reviving culture and reinventing cities for a more sustainable and inclusive future.
We’ll share conversations, insights and research on topics including the six qualities of great urban places, why city makers should design for spontaneity, what makes a magnetic workplace, how to design more inclusive, sustainable infrastructure and innovation precincts — and many more.
