ULI AUSTRALIA URBAN INNOVATION INITIATIVE

The ULI Australia Urban Innovation Initiative champions youth leadership, urban innovation and collaboration in the property industry. The Initiative features a regular Urban Innovation Ideas Competition that explores solutions to topical and timely issues or projects relevant to the successful urbanisation of Australia’s cities. The Initiative is consistent with the ULI’s global mission and couples creative thinking by tomorrow’s leaders with mentoring from sector specialists to disrupt traditional thinking and to develop cutting edge ideas to transform cities.

ABOUT THE 2018 URBAN INNOVATION IDEAS COMPETITION

The goal for the 2018 Urban Innovation Ideas Competition is to generate ideas that contribute to Melbourne CBD’s north-west corner emerging as a vibrant, safe and highly liveable, 24-hour neighbourhood. Entries should propose ideas which would facilitate a transformation of this focus area into a locality with a strong sense of identity, community and place. In particular, specific uses, interventions or initiatives are sought which knit together the existing diverse land uses, activities and stakeholders. Entries may target specific parts of the focus area, or the entire focus area. Urban Innovations can relate to any aspect of urban development – physical, operational, cultural, social, environmental, technological or otherwise. In particular, the Competition seeks new approaches and disruptive thinking.
