THE YPCONNECT – DANGEROUS IDEAS TOUR IS NOW FULL
YPConnect: Dangerous Ideas: Disrupting the Future of Planning
This year, YPConnect is thrilled to bring you a YP-Exclusive interactive experience: Dangerous Ideas – Disrupting the Future of Planning, in partnership with Hassell.
How can technology and data help to address some of the most challenging issues facing cities today?
Fuelled by the success of ‘Hack the Streets’ in WA in 2016, Hassell and YPConnect join forces to present Dangerous Ideas, a YP exclusive interactive ‘hack’ on Day 1 of Congress. Join our show-stopping experts and team up with other YPs to tackle four of the most urgent issues facing Australian cities today and into the future:
Plan to be Healthy
How can urban planning influence community health outcomes?
How can data be used to improve urban design and town planning outcomes?
Fix the Bias
How can data and technology help collect input from all members of the community for planning strategies through to urban design projects?
Housing: Our Future
How can we respond to the housing diversity and affordability crises facing our cities?
Governments across the world are providing their communities with greater access to data and technology. This event is an opportunity for YPs from around Australia to:
• Be heard,
• Develop great ideas,
• Influence the future of our cities,
• Be leaders of change and innovation across our industry.
Together, we can use technology to simplify planning, engage our communities and drive the creation of tomorrow’s cities.
This brand new Congress experience is exclusive to the first 60 participants, so make sure you get in early to secure your place!
