Presented by the Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning and the Connected Cities Lab; with partners the Business Council for Sustainable Development Australia and the Banksia Foundation.
30 September – 2 October 2020
Across three days in September and October, we invite you to the inaugural virtual ABP Symposium, which in 2020 will focus on the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Featuring interactive workshop sessions, breakout rooms, keynotes and opportunities for delegates to connect across time zones, the summit will showcase the role cities and their urban partners are playing in implementing the SDGs.
The virtual symposium format will provide a platform for delegates to listen and interact with some of the world’s leading voices in urban sustainability and action on climate change, including case studies of responses to the COVID-19 pandemic.
One unique aspect of the symposium program will be the format of the breakout sessions. There will be one stream dedicated to climate change and urban planning, two key themes of the Sustainable Development Goals.
There will also be two streams dedicated to learning from and engaging with cities participating in the SDGs Cities Challenge.
Delegates will be invited to join the collaborative process of co-design between business, academic and government solution providers, offering each participating city the opportunity to produce an implementation plan aligned to the SDGs.
Recorded keynotes, sessions and panels will be immediately available to all delegates at the conclusion of the Symposium, allowing you to access parallel session content and develop your responses and outcomes while they are still top-of-mind.
Who should attend?
This symposium is relevant to all urban actors – in government, practice, academia, civil society and industry – engaged in urban sustainability.
We look forward to seeing you online in September.
