Green Cities Conference - Sydney

22 - 24 March, 2016
Hilton Sydney, 488 George St, Sydney.

Co-hosted annually by the Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) and the Property Council of Australia, Green Cities is Australia’s premier sustainability conference for the built environment. 2016 marks a decade of Green Cities - and the time has come to dial things up. It’s time to be disruptive.

The 2016 event will deliver three days of practical site tours, hands-on masterclasses, fun networking events and inspiring speakers.

Over the past decade, the event has connected the industry with great thinkers and challenged everyone to go beyond. But this year, organisers are dialling things up and presenting a conference of disruptive ideas. After all, disruption stands at the intersection of innovation and business-as-usual. A catalyst for change, disruption changes the way we look at things – challenging and creating, sparking new ideas and exposing new possibilities previously unimagined.

Speakers include keynote Mark Shayler, Director of Ape an innovation and environmental consultancy, Yuko Nishida, Planner from the Bureau of Environment, Tokyo Metropolitan Government, Lucy Hughes Turnbull AO, Chair of The Committee for Sydney and Elizabeth Proust AO, Chairman of Nestlé Australia & Bank of Melbourne.
