NGAA members, research partners and academics are invited to submit projects or research to the 2021 Symposium: Research and Practice from growth areas. Submissions close Wednesday 28th April.
Outer metropolitan growth area councils are innovators by necessity, developing and applying new knowledge and practices that build suburbs and communities out of paddocks into thriving, liveable and resilient places. This work deserves to be celebrated and shared.
The 2021 Symposium, a virtual event in July is an opportunity for growth area practitioners to share new projects, findings and achievements with their peers and the wider community on a national scale. More information on the Symposium, the submission process and partnership opportunities with the NGAA here.
With thanks to our Symposium partner, Liverpool City Council.
In growth areas, so much of what governments are dealing with is completely new. The NGAA Symposium showed that this is fostering an ethos of fresh new thinking, partnerships, and different ways of working with growth area communities. Presentations available here.
