The Melbourne I Dream Forum was aimed principally at local and state government urban and social planners, designers, architects, engineers and councillors. It was also aimed more broadly at anyone who loves this metropolis and wants to see Melbourne grow into a healthy, beautiful, functional future city.
It took the form of a pecha kucha style presentation, a Japanese term for the sound of chit chat and a highly visual and engaging format. A 10-person panel presented their ideas about a sustainable city using 10 slides only for five minutes each.
Virginia Trioli (ABC Radio National) facilitated the pecha kucha session followed by a 30 minute audience-panellist discussion.
The Municipal Association of Victoria (MAV) is the peak body for local government in Victoria. Our intention in organising this forum was to inform, engage and inspire forum attendees at this particular moment in time when the Victorian Government is about to embark on the preparation of a new metropolitan strategy, thus readying local government as a key stakeholder in the process with examples of inspiring and innovative contemporary city planning concepts.
