After the last successful tour of Australia in February of this year, Team Better Block was overwhelmed by the response of attendees who were ready to end the planning process and begin rolling up their sleeves to rapidly transform their own communities. This June, TBB will be returning to review two different Better Block projects: the first in Geelong on June 15th, and the second in Coburg on June 16th.
On June 18th, Better Block founder, Jason Roberts, will be presenting at the Liveable Cities Conference in Melbourne sponsored by the Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency. On June 20th, Jason will be presenting at the Urban Conversations event in Sydney. This event is being organized by the New South Wales Planning and Infrastructure Department, and will include presentations by Henriette Vamberg of Gehl Architects, and by artist David Meslin from Toronto, Canada.
