This project aims to bring together knowledge of different local stakeholders, council members, state government representatives, science and the design community to develop future, climate adaptive, visions for three localities. In two consecutive charrettes, a multi-day intensive design workshop, these visions are designed. In between the two charrettes the results will be assessed, before being elaborated in greater detail.

The findings will be used by the individual councils and by policy makers to stimulate a wider uptake of the method in other regions.

Start By 15 May 2011
