Sunshine Coast Futures Conference

Registrations will soon close for the Sunshine Coast Futures Conference, to be held at the Innovation Centre Sunshine Coast on Friday 8 November 2013. The Sunshine Coast Futures Conference Series is presented by the University of the Sunshine Coast and Sunshine Coast Council.

At the Sunshine Coast Futures Conference 2013, international and national experts will provoke and discuss ideas about a peri-urban future, the planning policy for SEQ and how Brisbane as the state’s capital ‘thinks’ and ‘sees’ the Sunshine Coast.

For the first time, Sunshine Coast audience will be given the opportunity to hear direct from Lord Mayor Graham Quirk, as both Brisbane Mayor and as Chair of SEQ Council of Mayors, on this important issue. Cr Mark Jaimeson, Mayor of the Sunshine Coast will also provide the region’s strategies for the future.

Keynote speaker, Professor Mario Polese, urban economist and senior research chair in urban and regional studies from the Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique (INRS) Montréal, Canada will provide his expert view on how peri-urban areas can actively participate into the future.

Professor Mike Hefferan, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Engagement) and Professor Property and Development will follow with recent research findings on the issue.

Finally, an expert panel made up of Sallyanne Atkinson AO, Mike Kerry, David Eades, and Andrew Craig (see profiles) will provide the audience an opportunity to explore how businesses and institutions from the Sunshine Coast can better take advantage of the region’s unique position in SEQ.
