Festival of Urbansim 7: Making Better Places
What a year it’s been! After a summer of destructive bushfires with temperatures over 50C in our suburbs, we were hit with a pandemic that ravaged our economy. But this isn’t the last hot summer with heightened bushfire risk. The pandemic isn’t going to simply vanish, and what about the next one? How we can use our experience of the summer bushfires and the pandemic to think about how we can move forward by Making Better Places?
That is the theme of the 7th Festival of Urbanism. The Festival will also provide an update on some of the exciting research the Henry Halloran Trust has been doing this year. Most importantly, the Festival will provide participants with some additional urban tools – whether it’s advice on what to look for when choosing a new apartment, or how to get the most out of reading a government report.
