Communities rarely meaningfully participate in the design of the urban landscape. Human rights-based approaches in built environment delivery require a more active engagement of rights holders in the design process.
In this symposium built environment professionals will be empowered to engage with their communities more actively, and understand the value of participatory design in unlocking tacit knowledge in given localareas across Melbourne. The night offers co-designing experiences between built environment professionals, urban activists, students, and keynote guests with opportunities to share knowledge, listen and identify areas where industry change is needed to affect socially sustainable urban change.
