This conference aims to tackle - head-on – the integration of urban greening with below ground services and trees into living spaces, where you didn’t think it was possible.
State Government Ministers together with some of Australia’s leading experts join forces to outline the Disruption and Innovation around this topic, show you ways to break-down previously held barriers and to demonstrate the ‘art of the possible’. This promises to provide fresh, dynamic perspectives and practical recommendations for Local Government and Commercial Organisations alike.

The conference is targeted at Local and State Government, Town Planners, Land and Property Developers, Landscape Architects, Urban Planners, Contractors, Engineers, Project Managers, Consulting / Municipal Arborists, and City / Urban Foresters.
