Future-Focused Investments to Support a Sustainable Future

Thursday, 2 June 2022 | 11am – 1.10pm AEST | Online

Event Overview

Part of the Smart Cities & Infrastructure National Insights

Australian agencies from across jurisdictions are seeking to embed sustainability in their future infrastructure investments.  In order to reach net zero by 2050 and align with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), government from across federal, state and local boundaries must come together to create a unified vision for a more sustainable future. 

Join Public Sector Network’s Q2 Smart Cities & Infrastructure complimentary virtual event to strategise how new technologies and better climate policy can safeguard the future of Australia’s cities and regions.
