This forum brings together three leading contributors to the City of Melbourne’s knowledge economy: Mr Geoff Lawler, Director City Planning and Infrastructure, City of Melbourne; Professor Margaret Sheil, Provost and Acting Vice-Chancellor, The University of Melbourne; and Associate Professor Rufus Black, Master, Ormond College. Associate Professor Peter Jamieson, Strategic Advisor Learning Environment Design, The University of Melbourne will moderate the session.

These representatives from the city, University and residential colleges will consider the importance of space and place in knowledge creation and the role of universities and colleges in the culture of the City of Melbourne.
