Adelaide, one of the world's most liveable cities: fact/fiction?

Adelaide is internationally ranked as one of the world’s most liveable cities. But what makes a city liveable? And what does this really mean for people who live in greater Adelaide now and in the future?

Join us for a lively panel discussion, with a diversity of experts, who will look at these questions from a range of perspectives including environmental, social, cultural, liveability and complex systems.

Facilitator: Ken Long, ESD Consultant at dsquared Consulting, Chair of the Adelaide Sustainable Building Network and Ambassador of the International Living Future Institute.

• Natasha Davis, CEO at Trees For Life
• Jack Buckskin, Kaurna language teacher and expert, and Aboriginal Cultural Service Mentor at Tauondi Aboriginal College
• Fraser Keegan, Project Officer, Right Bite Program, Early Years and Child Development, Department for Education and Child Development
• Sharon Zivkovic, Co-founder of Wicked Lab; Adjunct Research Associate, University of South Australia; Lecturer, University of Adelaide’s Social Entrepreneurship course
• Andrew Bishop, Senior Project Manager at Renewal SA

We’ve also invited artists to create while our experts debate! Valli Morphett from Morph-it will create an interpretive liveable Adelaide collage inspired by views shared during the evening, and a slam poet will also perform.

You will be challenged by the synergies, competing needs and tensions that exist in our city. Come prepared with your own questions to stretch our panel.

Cost: $10 includes a complimentary drink and cocktail snacks
