We are very excited LatStudios’ Associates Georgina Pratten and Stephen Orr will be sharing their perspective on what a “Green and Blue by '32” future looks like from an environmental planning perspective for South East Queensland (SEQ) on the 19th October in Brisbane.

With SEQ set to host the 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the event will explore how we accelerate and scale up momentum and work to restore the diverse landscapes of SEQ and protect the environmental, social, cultural and economic values that attract and keep people here. Can we turn our catchments and cities green, and make our waterways blue by 2032?

The day has been designed to create an opportunity for a diverse set of practitioners and professionals to discuss, share, learn and shape ideas, aspirations and aims for a Green and Blue SEQ. Discussions will be informed by Indigenous, environmental science, social science, environmental planning and economics perspectives to consider how we can bring about effective restoration more rapidly and at scale across SEQ to create a lasting Olympic and Paralympic legacy. 

This event builds upon the momentum of the recent ‘Bringing the blue, green and grey together’ event led by AILA, Stormwater Queensland and Engineers Australia and also brings together the energy and networks of the Australian Rivers Institute, Queensland Water Modelling Network, the River Basin Management Society, Stormwater Queensland, and the Moreton Bay Foundation.

We hope you can join us for this insightful event. Link to book tickets here.
