World Engineers Convention: Future Melbourne - digitally connected communities

A great city is rated by its liveability, and Melbourne held the number one ranking for ‘Most Liveable City’ according to The Economist Intelligence Unit for a record-breaking seven year monopoly, losing its crown to Vienna in 2018.

But what criteria are used to measure liveability? In essence, the criteria are based around challenges that might be presented to an individual’s lifestyle. This includes categories such as stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education and infrastructure.

So, what is Melbourne planning in the next 10 years to get us back to that number one spot?

Hear direct from Melbourne’s Lord Mayor Sally Capp and Victorian Chief Engineer Dr Collette Burke who will outline the plans for future Melbourne. Italy’s Professor Carlo Ratti will also explore how digital technology is being used by other cities around the world to plan infrastructure around resident’s needs and requirements.

This is a free event, with limited tickets available. Registration is essential to secure your place.

The public forum event forms part of the wider program for the World Engineers Convention (WEC) 2019. Hosted every four years in a different location around the world, WEC is a chance for some of the top minds in engineering to meet in one place.

The program focuses on sustainable cities and climate change, innovation and disruption, and leadership and governance, while also addressing the need for a more diverse profession and the capabilities that are required for the engineers of our future.

Tickets for the World Engineers Convention are still available, see more at www.wec2019.org.au.
