For many years, Melbourne has dined out on being recognised by The Economist as “the most liveable city in the world;” and is now second to Vienna. While this global recognition is a source of great pride and an excellent marketing tool – is this measure of “liveable” fit for purpose, when considering the residents of Melbourne?
Drawing on almost a decade of research, Professor Billie Giles-Corti will consider:
- What is a liveable city?
- How are we measuring liveability?
- Are we creating liveable cities in Australia for all?
- If not, why not?
And perhaps most importantly, why our definition of and support for “liveability” is important if we are concerned about creating cities that facilitate healthy and sustainable lifestyles that support both individual and planetary health.
