Reimagining the city

How can Melbourne get its buzz back?

In this webinar, a panel of experts discuss how to revitalise the city of Melbourne following the COVID-19 pandemic.

They talk about how more working from home, for those who can, has changed the city economy, housing choices and travel patterns. They explore what this may mean for the retail and tourism sectors in the longer term.

The panel also discusses how we plan our cities, and the infrastructure Melbourne needs to meet these changes, such as connected green spaces. They consider how to revive the centre of the city so that Melbourne continues to be a great place to live, work and enjoy.

Infrastructure Victoria Chief Executive Officer Dr Jonathan Spear facilitates this webinar.
