About this Event
**Unfortunately, due to the new COVID restrictions, the event will be postponed**
A ProtoCity is one which encourages and supports the development and testing of new approaches and technologies through creative governance, smart business and an engaged citizen base.
Such a city would create an environment that invites the world to come and play in a city-scale 'sandbox' which supports innovation, efficiencies and improvements for how all cities function, support commerce and be well.
The second Future Forum event for 2021, ProtoCity will be cross-disciplinary discussion that explores what will be required to holistically improve how our city functions and serves its citizens.
Leading the discussion will be Ross Harding from Finding Infinity, who will share with us the work they are currently delivering in terms of self-sufficient architecture and cities.
"Cities are transforming from consumers to producers - it's inevitable. Imagine leaving the next generation with a city based on resources that will never run out. An infinite city."
Ross will inspire us to consider how Adelaide could position itself as a world leader in such a transition.
Following Ross' keynote, an interactive panel discussion including some of South Australia's leading thinkers will take place to discuss how Adelaide can continue to build its reputation as a magnet for innovation.
Joining Ross on the panel will be Katherine Bennell, Director of Space Capability and Robotic Automation at the Australian Space Agency, Julianne Parkinson, CEO of the Global Centre for Modern Aging, Daniel Moore, Director and Building Services Manager of WSP SA, Louka Parry, CEO of the Learning Future, and Karl Telfer, Co-Director of YELLAKA.
The audience will have the opportunity to interact with the panel and contribute to live discussions through a platform that you can connect to using your mobile device. As always, we will close with a live Q & A held at the end of the panel discussion.
Networking will follow at Electra House where you can connect with other like-minded South Australian's to help your big ideas to grow.
These events always sell out, so don't miss out.
