A matter of urban ecology

A matter of urban ecology

Get ready for the second Sustain/Create event this Friday, featuring a lineup of three design and sustainability experts gathering to discuss the relationship between ecology and urban development.

Organised by the St Paul St Gallery and AUT School of Art+Design, the event explores the notion that urban development has resulted in a loss of connection with the larger and more complex ecology that exists outside of a city and asks: what is the role of ecology in a future urban context?

The lineup comprises Michael Trudgeon, the deputy director of the Victorian Eco Innovation Lab in Melbourne; Colin Meurk of Landcare Research; and Xavier Meade, designer, architect, photographer and graphic designer.

When: May 11, 6 pm

Where: St Paul St Gallery
