Melbourne Forum: Thrivability, Regeneration, and the Eden Project

Forum

The Treasury Theatre, Lower Plaza, 1 Macarthur Street, East Melbourne

What is regeneration? What is thrivability? And, why is it seen as the “radical new way” to drive innovation? Led by international and local experts, this forum will address why regenerative development and running a business in a generative way is important and very possible.

Development cases looked at will include post-mining communities and housing development. The forum will explore examples from Australia, and look at the lessons from the Eden Project, and how understanding the link between regenerating nature, development potential and having a business aligned with nature is a great way to have thriving social, ecological, and economic outcomes.

Though we will be discussing serious issues, the intention is that Melbourne Forum also incorporates elements of fun and laughter. It is well known that innovation and the ability to solve the pertinent issues facing us today occur more successfully when we are not in a reactive, stressed, and concerned frame of mind. For this reason, for one special Melbourne Forum, your MC will be comedian Rod Quantock.
