Sustainability and urban transformation to improve people’s lives, is the focus of this week’s Future Cities National Forum, held at the University of Melbourne.

The University of Melbourne is launching an exhibition of international work on sustainable urban design, in a program known as Eco-Acupuncture, helping communities ‘future-proof’ their cities for the impact of climate change.

Michael Trudgeon, the Deputy Director of the Victorian Eco Innovation Lab (VEIL), discusses the Melbourne 2032 project, where university students and design professionals examined just how the city would look in 20 years.

You can watch all the videos produced by the students for the Melbourne 2032 project here: http://www.ecoinnovationlab.com/component/content/article/116-visioning-2032-city-of-short-distances/397-visioning-2032-films

Moe information about the project is also available at http://newsroom.melbourne.edu/news/n-460.

The big screen at Melbourne’s Federation Square will play a selection of films examining just what a sustainable city will look like in the future.

The Victorian Eco Innovation Lab (VEIL) has been invited by the World Mayors Summit and Siemens to take part in this year’s United Cities and Local Governments Congress.

Residences that generate power and purify grey water and farming fish and growing vegetables in a refurbished factory are two of the options being proposed in a new Victorian Eco-Innovation Labs (VEIL) plan to make Broadmeadows and other Melbourne suburbs ‘greener’ and healthier.

Dwindling resources and radical environmental change is putting access to essential services like food and water at risk, according to the Victorian Eco-Innovation Lab (VEIL).
