Docklands is a drawcard

28 Feb 2012

Docklands’ sustainability credentials are bringing an international contingent of interested experts to Melbourne this month.

The City of Melbourne is hosting a C40 workshop on collaborating, planning and delivering sustainable communities on March 28, 29 and 30.

C40 is the Cities Climate Leadership Group, a network of major world cities concerned with climate change.

In 2009 Victoria Harbour was announced as one of 16 exemplary projects around the world demonstrating positive contributions to the battle against climate change.

Victoria Harbour is the main drawcard for this month’s workshop.  C40 delegates will learn about Victoria Harbour on March 28 when a panel discussion will be conducted.

Among the panellists will be Lend Lease’s head of development David Rolls, City of Melbourne CEO Kathy Alexander and Places Victoria CEO Sam Sangster.

C40 was created in 2005 and later formed a partnership with former US president Bill Clinton’s Climate Initiative (CCI) to reduce carbon emissions and increase energy efficiency in large cities across the world.
