Addressing people’s fears for the future

Future Cities Summit 2020 Speaker - Ben Hammersley

Generational changeover: Who are faces behind the trends?

By 2025 75% of the global workforce will be millennials. They could be your customer, colleague or competitor. Millennials, Gen Z’s and the generations that follow: who are the people behind these not so future trends? What are their habits, hopes and dreams for the future? How will this impact the operation, ownership and design of our cities?

Keynote Presentation: Claire Madden, Author & Social Researcher

Future Cities 2020 Speaker - Claire Madden

Rapid Resilience

Epidemics, emergencies and acts of God – when threats are immediate and how we respond to the new normal.  What is the relationship between the city and emergencies that threaten life, prosperity and homes?

Morning Tea

What else can you do when hundreds of billions of infrastructure projects are on their way?

This is not in a short-term boom of infrastructure investment. This is the new normal if we are to meet the challenges and opportunities ahead.  Federal and state governments are doing the heavy lifting to drive historically high levels of infrastructure investment. But what else can be done? What role can, behavioural economics and psychology play in maximising the return on our infrastructure investment? Can we change the way people use our cities?

Transforming for the future: big and small

Projects at different scales transform cities in different ways. Learn the lessons from two new international projects as they work to transform their city.

Networking Lunch

Most real estate firms can't take the risk of working with startups. Instead, they should look to emerging real estate technology ('RealTech') businesses that have already demonstrated their products in market.

Dissecting the needs and dreams of people

Discover how data-driven insights can reveal what people truly need from their cities based on where they go, what they buy and how they socialise to inform critical policy-making and economic growth.

Beating the benchmarks

Our Cities are among the most liveable in the world. But, is our brand better than our product? Do our cities need to be fun to be successful? Or do they just need to be efficient and productive? What do we have to do to improve our performance relative to our competitors?

Panel:
Raynuha Sinnathamby, Managing Director, Springfield City Group 
The Hon Rob Stokes MP, NSW Minister for Planning and Public Spaces 
- Additional panellists to be confirmed

Moderator: Kate Meyrick, Director, Urbis

Afternoon Tea

Generating lasting social value at scale

As our thinking about economic growth has evolved, so too has our thinking about the impacts of business activity on people and the planet.  ‘Social value’ is a natural convergence of economic growth and the kind of growth we should strive for as a global economy. What is the planned transformation of Edinburgh’s city centre? How has this been deliberately planned to deliver shared value benefiting all residents, business, workers, visitors and the natural environment?

Speaker:
Stefanie O’Gorman, Director of Sustainable Economics (UK), Jacobs
