An interactive forum to celebrate the launch of RMIT PlaceLab, a new urban initiative connecting communities, shaping place, and taking a radically different approach to doing research.

The future is local. Now is the time to rethink how we live, and the solutions needed to support a more sustainable, adaptive, and inclusive future. RMIT is taking a fresh approach to doing research, one that’s more collaborative and informed by the people who know their neighbourhoods best: that’s you.

In this open forum, join the conversation, alongside the RMIT PlaceLab team, learn about this exciting new initiative, and explore how RMIT PlaceLab aims to Engage, Research & Transform Melbourne’s most vital urban opportunities.
