A new milestone for RCA has been achieved this week. Our new Chair, Mayor Van Styn was invited to attend the National Cities Summit by the Assistant Minister for Cities and Digital Transformation the Hon Angus Taylor MP. This is the first official acknowledgement by the Federal Government that our cities are part of the national urban agenda.
The National Cities Summit aims to work on improving the productivity, accessibility and liveability of Australia’s cities. It is seen as a national priority for the Australian Government. The Summit hopes to bring together key stakeholders to discuss opportunities for innovation in our urban centres and explore better ways for governments, the private sector and research community to collaborate to shape the future of our cities, and improve the way they function to ensure Australia’s ongoing prosperity.
