The line-up for the 8th Smart Urban Futures Conference in May 2022 included speakers from the UK, Norway, Belgium and around Australia.

For the first time, we delivered the conference as a hybrid event, with the ability to attend online or in person. This year the conference had a particular focus on transport and urban planning to deliver inclusive cities that respond to climate change.

Keynote speakers included:

  • Matthew Baldwin, Deputy Director-General, European Commission
  • Ellie Cosgrave, Director, Publica (UK)
  • Helge Hillnhütter, Associate Professor at Norwegian University of Science and Technology
  • Bec Mouy, Director Streets and Centres, NSW Dept of Planning and Environment

The Smart Urban Futures conference is presented by the Municipal Association of Victoria (MAV) and Victoria Walks.
