Brisbane 2033: Legacy Project

Free livestream event – Mission Fit Cities: Competitiveness in the Post Pandemic Age – Part 1

Whilst cities matter more than ever, not all cities will succeed equally in the future. Those that are set for success are making bold decisions now, investing in the sectors and infrastructure that will sustain their competitiveness and lifestyle appeal.

How does Brisbane measure up?

Part One: Setting the Scene, Brisbane in a New World Order with Kate Meryick, Director Future State, Urbis at 12-1pm, Tuesday 12 May

Understanding the changing competitive landscape, the emerging circuits of cities who are competing for talent and capital, and where Brisbane should be looking for economic alliances to build “fitness” for the suite of clearly emerging megatrends.

These trends are characterised by themes of talent, technology, inequality, globalisation and climate resilience.  These will continue to shift the emphasis of cities, especially in the post-pandemic environment. They will also pivot and be amplified in new ways as some of the ‘sticky’ behaviours from the pandemic change sentiment, productivity, and patterns of movement.

We now need to define what kind of city and society we wish to become. A collective and productive Brisbane? Or an individualistic and segregated one?
