ž

Each year ž delivers an innovative conference bringing together planners from throughout rural and regional Australia.

Our conference program presents the latest rural planning trends and thought leadership from across Australia.


REINVENTION: PLANNING IN A TIME OF CHANGE

We live in an era of unprecedented social, environmental, economic, and technological changes – and these changes are reinventing how we plan the future of Australia’s communities.

Planning in Australia is in the spotlight more than ever. Planning system change and improvement will be crucial to address the above challenges including the housing crisis.

Whether it’s planning for resilience and climate action; addressing housing and urban change; realising the potential of digitalization and PlanTech; or embracing planning with Country to better recognise and respect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples – change is calling.


ž Rural, Regional & Remote Conference 2024 is themed “Reinvention: Planning in a time of change” and it’s all about how the planning profession can seize opportunities in this moment of change.

As planners, we are often leading change in our communities – and we have to be innovative, inventive and creative to get it done.

How might we prepare? How should we lead communities and clients through change? What projects are already showing us a glimpse of a brighter future? This call for abstracts invites you to share your ideas so that we can plan in a time of change.
