A new research partnership with Australia’s Deakin University and design and engineering firm SMEC has the continent leading the field of urban sustainability.

The partnership will focus on infrastructural and technological developments that can further urban sustainability efforts internationally. As the cities remain the largest contributor to climate change, giving attention to them to find ways they can be part of its solution may be effective.

“The partnership further provides scope to strengthen the biophilic cities concept for Geelong and Melbourne, building on the example of Singapore as a certified Biophilic City,” Dr. Phillip Roos, director of the Live+Smart Research Lab and Associate Head of the Deakin’s School of Architecture and Built Environment, explained.

Roos added that the partnership would begin by focusing on innovative urban design and planning research and then further sustainability and environmental efforts.
