The inaugural European Green Australia Summit on November 10, 2017 will kick off a new conference series dedicated to the exchange of ideas and services around sustainable planning between Australia and Europe, with a spotlight on Germany.
This year’s focus is on Sustainable Infrastructure for Intelligent Cities and Healthy Regions. Smart Cities themselves are not enough – they must be intelligently conceived and managed to meet the needs of communities, businesses and nations who are facing a future dominated by climate change. The conference will open discussions around frameworks for habitability, liveability, sustenance, prosperity and resilience.
EUGAUS brings together the finest thinkers and doers in the integrated fields of green infrastructure: new urban design, architecture and construction, health, housing and property development, energy efficiency and renewable energy systems, information technology and finance, project management and execution.
EUGAUS 2017 is presented by the Liechtenstein Institute for Strategic Development in Berlin, supported by the Australian Government as part of Australia now Germany 2017 – a year-long initiative to showcase the creative excellence, diversity and innovation of Australia as well as highlighting new collaborations and deepen networks across a variety of fields.
