60 Million Australians by 2100

Sundowner With Author Dr Julian Bolleter

Events - 11 Jun 2013

Over 75 years ago, Professor C. T. Madigan of Adelaide University predicted that Australia’s population would reach 60 million in 200 years; at that time the population was at 6.8 Million. Having just hit the 23 million mark, and in line with ABS studies, Australia is well on track to hit the 60 million mark by 2100. How will we accommodate for this increase? Bring your imagination and curiosity along to this informal networking sundowner.

Dr Julian Bolleter is an award winning landscape architect and co-author of ‘Made in Australia’. In his book, Dr Bolleter has described how to design for healthy sustainable communities. They hold the promise of better social inclusion and active health, both areas that when they fail, place stress on the public sector. According to Dr Bolleter, sustainable communities self serve in many instances and thus reduce the stress on the public service. 

Dr Bolleter shared his 'big picture' thinking on the design for Australia's future at this informal sundowner hosted at the historic Stables Bar in Perth.
