Creating Space: where is it found, who is it for and how should it be used?

This event will look at how Melbourne is providing more open space for its growing population from a micro and macro level with two panel discussions. The first panel discussion will be a case study about the newly opened Prahran Square, a $62M development undertaken by the City of Stonnington to transform a run-down car park into public open space. The second half of the event will take a broader look at how Melbourne property leaders are incorporating open spaces into their developments and how it’s shaping our society.

This event is presented by AECOM and supported by RACV.

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
