A better approach to sustainable places

We are living in a time characterised by a crisis in funding and resources for local government and the costs of living. At this challenging time, we need to double down in our efforts to harness sustainability as a key driver of social, environmental and economic opportunities that will lead to better quality places, better public health outcomes and a more inclusive economy.

In our latest publication with long-time partners REDO, we’ve collected a selection of articles which:

  • Make the case for retrofit as a quality of life issue and economic opportunity as well as an environmental imperative.
  • Explore how ‘Local’ Carbon Offsets Funds could be a new source of funding for Councils to deliver their climate action plans.
  • Set out how the Brisbane 2032 Olympics could adopt a more locally-focused, regenerative approach that creates a balance between grassroots and large-scale projects.
  • Explain why new language is needed to effectively articulate our ambitions for change as we transition to a new economy grounded in better local insights, focused on addressing inequality, and committed to tackling the climate crisis.
