Early Career Urban Research Working Group - Strategy Update
On 26 May 2023, RMIT Urban Futures Enabling Impact Platform hosted a workshop for the Future Earth Australia Early Career Urban Research Working Group to review and update Sustainable Cities and Regions: 10 Year Strategy to Enable Urban Systems Transformation.
This 2023 workshop brought together 13 PhD candidates and early career researchers to act as a working group and offer new perspectives on Future Earth Australia's Urban Decadal Strategy, published first in 2019. The group identified the following recommendations to update the strategy:
1. Reassess the current state of play in Australian cities and regions.
2. Realign the decadal strategy to contemporary values
3. Redefine urban knowledge and approaches to dissemination
4. Connect policy to action
