Councils called to form future
The Australian Academy of Science wants councils’ input on the sustainable development of Australia’s cities and urban settlements.
Future Earth Australia has invited local government to complete a survey on issues and options for more sustainable development of Australia’s cities and urban settlements.
It applies to all settlements from large cities to smaller regional towns and centres, and considers economic, social and environmental outcomes.
Future Earth Australia, a program of the Australian Academy of Science, is coordinating the development of a national strategy to support urban transformation.
Responses will contribute to a national strategy exploring ‘urban systems transformation’.
The survey can be completed anonymously and all information is treated confidentially, but respondents can leave contact details if they wish to be informed about the results of the survey.
