Shaping cities: Towards 50 million

With Australia’s population projected to almost double in the next 40 years, planning and shaping our cities so they remain liveable in the face of this growth is a priority. While Australia’s population now tops 24 million, by 2054-55 it is forecast to climb to almost 40 million, and an annual average population growth rate above the world average.

Hosted jointly by the Planning Institute of Australia and the Australian Institute of Architects, a panel of leading Australian and International architects will examine the factors critical to a city’s success.

With the City of Sydney’s Director of City Planning, Graham Jahn AM as the session’s rapporteur, the panel will discuss why integrated design and planning are central to a city’s success, how equity is at the foundation of making vital and productive cities, why addressing climate change is critical and the vital importance of democracy and social licence in planning and design.
