Event details

Sydney is growing fast and we are seeing changing population profiles throughout the city. Migration has been a key driver of change, and not just those coming from overseas. There are also internal migration flows in and out of Sydney that affect communities across the metropolitan region. However, Sydney also has internal growth drivers that affect where people are living and working. This briefing will explore who lives where in Sydney, where new arrivals from overseas and other parts of Australia are settling and who is leaving Sydney. Join us to hear what this means for housing and urban infrastructure.
Dr Kim Johnstone will discuss how the population is changing and key factors we need to prioritise in our future planning. Bob Meyer will present on the role that population forecasting plays in informing the strategic planning process. Kim and Bob will then join a panel session moderated by Dr Shane Geha to discuss planning for and accommodating the challenges of population growth.
Bring along your clients and colleagues and network over canapés and beverages after formalities conclude.
