Imagine Melbourne

Lessons from Asia – Towards abundant,

net-zero-emissions energy by 2060

Melbourne has been named the world’s most-liveable city for the last seven years, but how long will we hold into this honour? What important lessons can we learn from our Asian neighbours and elsewhere around the world that can help Melbourne and other Australian cities navigate their own paths towards a bright energy future?

At present, Australia has amongst the world’s highest per capita emissions. Energy is fundamental to everything that we as a society do, but Australia still has a long way to go to develop a clean, integrated and smart energy future.

Following a successful launch event in Mumbai, please join AECOM and Asia Society Australia in Melbourne for the second in our Imagine 2060: Delivering tomorrow’s cities together event series. This year, Imagine 2060 considers ‘air’ and how Melbourne and other Australian cities can work with Asia to move towards zero-carbon emissions whilst simultaneously driving down the cost of energy to make it more accessible and supportive of a thriving economy.
