 The conference “Designing Productive Cities” will explore the framework required for creating today’s cities, the process of designing and shaping our cities to make them more functional, attractive and sustainable.  We will examine affordable housing and diversity for “Gen Y” who are interested in more compact design models. For the rapidly growing ageing population sector, we will discuss isolation, location, ease of transport, mobility and affordability.   Designing productive cities also has other considerations including Social Equity, Inclusion and developing meaningful relationships and interconnectivity between Cities and Regional Australia
