The Australian Financial Review yesterday published its second special report on the 202020 Vision. This report follows on from its first special report in November last year. This second report focuses on the theme of productivity, along with some of the outcomes from a roundtable forum it recently hosted on the 13th of March in Sydney .
Present at the forum amongst others were, the Federal Minister for the Environment Greg Hunt MP, Robert Prince (CEO NGIA) Romilly Madew (CEO Green Building Council of Australia), Rob Adams (City of Melbourne’s Director of City Design) David Goldsworthy (Medibank), Professor Dennis Else (Brookfield Multiplex) and Ken Maher (Chairman of Hassell).
During the roundtable Minster Hunt stated that “I want our cities to be physically greener with more spaces and canopy 10 years from where they are now, and 20 years from now to be greener than they are a decade away”.
