Event Overview

Sydney’s recent run of impressive growth has required government, industry, and communities alike to be more collaborative in planning for sustainable, liveability, and productive future.

By 2050, Sydney’s population is expected to increase to 7.5 million. How planners prepare for that growth tomorrow requires strategic planning today. 

CEDA NSW’s annual planning discussion in 2018 will consider Sydney’s long-term future and ask; 
  • How and where we will live?
  • How we will commute?
  • Where will we work? and;
  • And what do we want Sydney to look like in 2050.
