AIUS NSW City Briefing
Smart Citizens and the New Urban Operating System
Now that more than half the world’s population lives in cities, their operation, development and future is attracting renewed interest from all those looking to the shape and substance of national life. Australian cities, Sydney in particular, are exhibiting stress in accommodating population increase, in housing density and public works, notably transport, to match their rapidly increasing populations. An informed look at the future direction of city development is therefore timely.

Tickets are now available for our next City Briefing. Our guest speaker is Stephen Yarwood, an urban futurist and former Lord Mayor of Adelaide who is an enthusiast for cities and a strong supporter of innovation.
