These are just some of the high-powered and internationally-renowned built environment and sustainability experts that will be on-hand to share the wealth of their experience.
With each panel talk worth one CPD point (totalling six CPD points for the day), a particular program highlight is The continuing evolution of Indigenous Design, where a panel of Indigenous designers will gather to discuss their unique design perspectives and contributions to the sustainable built environment industry, and what we can do to ensure Indigenous voices are heard in the industry.
We will also be addressing one of this year’s biggest industry issues – the apartment building crisis. A topic much-loved by the media, but yet to be widely addressed in industry conferences. You can expect this panel to get contentious as our esteemed panel of experts scrutinise the topic and present their varying opinions on what’s going wrong and what needs to be done to fix it.
And in a first for Sustainability Live, we will have a live window testing demonstration with expert discussions on Australian window standards.
