Join us at the City Shaping Symposium

Posted on: May 1st, 2017

In a world of accelerating change, how can we shape a city that works for everyone?

We need to talk about Melbourne. The digital revolution is rewiring our economy, our institutions, and our public and private lives. The City Shaping Symposium invites you to tackle today’s challenges head on, and explore how the Melbourne Innovation Districts partnership can help redesign our future.

Throughout the day, sessions will connect a group of deeply experienced (and extremely interesting) leaders from the City of Melbourne, RMIT, University of Melbourne, Melbourne Innovation Districts, Amazon, ACMI, The State Library, Auspost, Telstra, The Ethical AI Taskforce, Committee for Melbourne, Grattan Institute, The Conversation, RRR, Startup Genome, EY, and Innovation & Science Australia – many of whom are leading influential city design and innovation programs that will shape the future of Melbourne.
