Join us for a thought-provoking panel discussion and Q & A with key building industry stakeholders. The Forum will be addressed by the Victorian Minister for Planning, The Hon. Sonya Kilkenny MP.
State and Federal Governments are now grappling with both housing and infrastructure issues. All stakeholders in the Victorian Building Industry are critical to providing jobs, building for future sustainability, and ensuring consumer protection. The Victorian Government has undertaken a program to reform the building system. These reforms raise important questions about consumer protection, building industry governance, and the role of developers, contractors, architects, and consultants. However, the building system is complex with many different moving parts and stakeholder interests.
This event will explore this context and highlight the issues in this complex landscape and how these might be addressed going forward.
Proudly supported by the Association of Consulting Architects.
Please join the Melbourne Centre for Cities for those interested in how Universities and Cities collaborate for impact.
This 1-day symposium features thought-provoking speakers, cutting-edge research and practice, and participatory discussions, to think about opportunities and challenges that arise when universities and cities work together to address important urban issues. Universities play a vital role in shaping the economic, social, and cultural landscape of their communities, and their impact can be felt far beyond the boundaries of their campuses.
At the same time, cities provide universities with a rich and diverse environment that supports their research, teaching, and projects.
