Sustainable Communities: An invite to listen

Here’s to mark my calendar to attend this event.
Sustainable communities: collaborating, planning, delivering – a C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group public event

Dear Rowena,

The City of Melbourne, in conjunction with the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group, invites you into the minds of the world’s leading thinkers on sustainability. The sharpest minds on cities and sustainability will be in Melbourne during March for a workshop on sustainable cities and this Melbourne Conversations event is your chance to hear what they are saying.

Sustainable communities: collaborating, planning, delivering has been developed in conjunction with the C40 workshop and will allow you to hear about leading-edge approaches to creating and maintaining sustainable communities.

Come along and give us your comments and opinions from the audience ‘hot seat’ or get involved in the conversation online through our Facebook group or on Twitter.
