greening sydney symposium835x373 

In November 2017, we welcomed 230 representatives from local government, development, and community groups to learn more about our commitment to making Greater Sydney a greener, healthier and more liveable city. 


The event, held at Waterview, Sydney Olympic Park, featured:  

  • 14 speakers
  • 22 councils
  • 1 draft policy
  • 2 panel discussions
  • 230 trees
  • 1 international guest
The Symposium launched the Greener Places draft policy for comment, announcing the NSW Government’s unprecedented commitment to a Greener Greater Sydney, and introduced newly appointed Commissioner of Open Space and Parklands, Fiona Morrison.

MC Tim ‘Rosso’ Ross led attendees through inspiring case studies from Penrith City Council, the Western Sydney Parklands Trust and keynote presentations from renowned landscape architect, Thomas Woltz, and passionate health campaigner Dr Stephen Corbett. 

The sell-out Symposium marks the first in a series of greening and open space  events that will continue through 2018. 

The Greener Places draft policy can be viewed on the Government Architect NSW website.
