Melbourne’s sustainability credentials to be displayed at 2017 summit

Melbourne’s sustainability credentials to be displayed at 2017 summit
March 25, 2016

Melbourne will host the Ecocity World Summit in 2017, showcasing its sustainability credentials to around 1,000 leading international urban planners, architects and environmental specialists.

Welcoming the gathering as recognition for Melbourne as a world-leading sustainable city, Melbourne Convention Bureau Chief Executive Karen Bolinger stated “Melbourne has excellent eco-city credentials, with many positive changes over recent years, such as investment in new technology that is improving the city’s sustainability and which we can profile at the Summit.

“For example, Melbourne has advanced parking management systems supported by strong public transport links, bike sharing and pedestrian precincts, which help mobility and achieving sustainability objectives.

“In the quarter of a century since Australia last hosted the Summit there have been many improvements that have boosted our credibility as a world centre for excellence in urban sustainability.”

The Summit will be held from 12th to 14th July 2017  at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, marking the second time that the Summit has been held in Australia. The event was previously held in Adelaide in 1992.
