Davina Rooney speaking at The Fifth Estate’s Tomorrowland, 2018

Tomorrowland19 I, human is the most exciting and challenging event you will attend this year.

A symposium with brilliant minds and provocative thinkers on how to deal with the challenges on the way.

Learn, engage, discuss

The challenges specific to the built environment are complex and interwoven. We need complex systems thinking and the evolving power of technology to help. In environmental management, in building technology, in shaping communities for economic capital and social capital, in finance that can deliver $100 million for the like of the amazing Nightingale Village; in how we manage the onslaught of technology coming at us in all directions.

Above all how we meet these unprecedented challenges and retain the best of our humanity with all its hopes and dreams for our people and our planet?

Tomorrowland 2018: “We the people” panel– the (long) highlights

Program

9.00 amWELCOME AND KEYNOTE
I, HUMAN AND THE ENVIRONMENT – AN INDIGENOUS PERSPECTIVE
The Indigenous voice is rising in the built environment – and in particular in the understanding that we need to understand the land, Country, in order to create the human outcomes we seek.

How can an Indigenous perspective help us create a viable blueprint for our cities in the face of rising challenges with water, ecology, heat, health and food security? As Western Sydney prepares to accommodate an additional 1.3 million people, how can we make sure the planning resonates with the complex and specific nature of this land and its people – both Indigenous and settler?

Sustainable communities need to be diverse, affordable, healthy and to do this they need to provide a resilient physical and ecological environment, walkable access, public transport, community engagement and economic opportunities. That’s a big ask, and in the realm of complex systems thinking.

What is the emerging understanding of these opportunities and how are they being realised?

Master planning design and covenants offer tremendous opportunities to raise the stakes and achieve better outcomes in all these areas. So do local governments.

What is the promise of the digital world to support the creativity of the architect, other designers and our sustainability imperatives? How can technology help to reduce or remove poor quality building practices?

    Greta and George say it best when they say Protect – Restore – Fund

    Please Talk more about protecting NATURE – we won’t survive without it!
    I Sent this message to Scott Morrison on 18th June 2019 – TIME TO TRANSITION: STOP COAL MINES. If we Replenish Groundwater, Protect Springs and Create Wetlands we create a new Economy and new Habitats. START WETLANDS – Intersections between Ice, Water and Money mean future Survival. Your support in talking about WETLANDS would REPLACE THE ADANI MINE WITH A NETWORK of WETLANDs across Australia. Protect Restore Fund WETLANDS for all species.

    Please Talk more about protecting NATURE – we won’t survive without it!
    ANCIENT KNOWLEDGE AND SCIENCE AGREE.
    A Knowledge Report “Ecological and hydrogeological survey of the Great Artesian Basin Springs: Springsure, Eulo, Bourke and Bogan River supergroups” by the Independent Expert Scientific Committee on Coal Seam Gas and Coal Mining, says, “Australia is the driest vegetated continent and has the smallest area of land surface covered by wetland of any continent. Inland Australia has been described as the ‘dead heart’, a ‘wide brown land’ and the ‘vast central desert’ (Finlayson 1935; Madigan 1946). When people imagine the interior, it is often as a dry, harsh and dusty place—the ‘great grey plain’ of Henry Lawson, a land of ‘ever-receding horizons, lonely graves’ (Durack 1959) and ‘pitiless skies’ (Duncan-Kemp 1934). In the midst of this aridity, springs provide vital physical as well as psychological succour. Their tiny surface area relative to the immensity of the surrounding landscape belies their immense ecological, cultural, economic and social significance.”

    The Adani and other coal mines require emergency action akin to wartime. Coal creates an irreversible interaction between ice and water – and the fate of all species. Economists see a money issue that can’t be explained and a video shows why the subsidies continue. https://www.michaelwest.com.au/adani-why-would-a-billionaire-persist-with-a-financial-lemon/
