Event description
Integrating native biodiversity into cities represents a smart opportunity to build future resilience for achieving sustainability goals.

About this Event

Australia’s population is projected to reach around 40 million people by 2061. Designing cities that integrate native biodiversity represents a smart opportunity to build future resilience and a significant pathway for achieving sustainability goals. Biodiverse green space can deliver enormous benefits for health, education and wellbeing; it can help mitigate climate and weather extremes and provide natural solutions to urban water management and air quality.

Join us in learning more about what is happening for nature in our cities and the opportunities this presents in Australia and globally.
