Lunchtime seminar: Adapting our cities for climate change

The ACT Government’s Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development Directorate in partnership with the ACT Division of EIANZ holds a free lunchtime seminar on the second Tuesday of each month, alternating between the ACT Government offices in Dickson and the Renewables Innovation Hub in Civic.

This interactive seminar series showcases different perspectives on key issues of climate change, biodiversity, infrastructure and sustainability through three cross-cutting themes of science, implementation and evaluation. Each session aims to provide innovative ideas, targeted learning, professional development and networking. These are delivered in a coordinated way so that the broader insights can be developed through connected seminars.

Environmental and other professionals across the ACT and surrounding region are welcome to attend this seminar series. Certified Environmental Practitioners who attend will accrue CPD points.
