The Future of Central Geelong series of virtual member briefings aim to dive deeper into the issues, challenges and opportunities facing central Geelong in a COVID-normal world.

Kicking off in May, the series is due to run through to June on a range of topics where experts in their field will share their ideas and plans on how to best design central Geelong’s future.

The first briefing of the series is titled, Urban Design and the Importance of Place Making, and we'll welcome Nat Anson from URBIS to discuss the importance of placemaking in the context of the Geelong CBD.
