Event Details

The Melbourne Innovation District is part of a global wave of urban best practice to demonstrate leadership in the knowledge economy.

Melbourne is very well-positioned to foster and grow thriving innovation districts given the presence of world-class universities, a dynamic and highly-educated start-up scene and its reputation in liveability. But how can we make the most of our innovation districts? What is their purpose beyond being a shiny showcase for innovativeness and smartness? How could innovation districts help to make our city resilient in the face of its massive sustainability challenges? What does this mean for the design and governance of the Melbourne Innovation District.

Wheelchair accessible.

Carbon neutral contribution

Melbourne Knowledge Week is committed to reducing its impact on the environment and will be certified carbon neutral for 2019.

This means we will measure the festival’s carbon emissions and implement actions to reduce them. Then we will purchase offsets on your behalf to cover the remaining emissions and achieve carbon neutrality.

Your contribution will go towards a range of offset projects including a reforestation project in NSW and a project which enables Aboriginal communities to reduce emissions through improved land management practices in the Kimberley.

Take action on climate change, act now.
