Cooler, greener Adelaide: shaping our future city

What’s the secret to a cooler, greener city?

Adelaide is getting hotter and drier. Knowing how to adapt can be hard, but the good news is that a cooler, greener Adelaide starts at home and in our suburban streets.

There are real advantages to considering water when planning, designing or renovating our homes and public spaces. If we store and use rainwater cleverly on any suburban block, we can get creative with trees, plants and lush outdoor areas that we can enjoy all year round with our families, friends and neighbours. This is certainly more appealing than worrying about how to cope with the climate or feeling trapped indoors under the air-conditioner.

Come and see how councils are transforming streets and neighbourhoods with new technologies and innovative design that includes using stormwater in the landscape, permeable paving, raingardens and the latest recycled water schemes.

We will also hear how greener public and commercial developments can support South Australian businesses, jobs, and the health and wellbeing of our communities.

What will our future city look like?

The Cooler, greener Adelaide forum and expo gathers innovators in design, building, research, planning and business to explore how ‘future Adelaide’ could look and feel. We’ll compare and discuss how a typical Adelaide suburb compares with one designed for a warmer climate.

Our best practice expo will showcase how cooler, greener homes are already a reality across Australia.

Maybe you’re looking for ideas and inspiration on how you influence the creation of better streets and parks. Maybe you’re planning, building, renovating or budgeting for a home. Either way, cooler, greener options abound at the forum and expo.

Book your free spot now for 20 March at the Adelaide Convention Centre. We look forward to seeing you!
