What can we learn from the experience in Vancouver to achieve better outcomes for our communities?

The City of Vancouver is consistently identified as one of the world’s most liveable cities. Beyond this it is renowned for its great urban planning and strategies that have created a ‘complete city’, not just a liveable one. This free public lecture is presented by Brent Toderian, former Chief Planner for the City of Vancouver. Brent is a widely respected practitioner in advanced urbanism, city planning and urban design, this free public lecture provides an opportunity to be inspired and learn from Vancouver’s urban planning achievements.

The evening is hosted by the Melbourne Sustainable Society Institute (MSSI) and Heart Foundation. The MC will be Professor Billie Giles-Corti Director of the McCaughey Centre for Community Wellbeing (the University of Melbourne).
