Endangered Urbanism Series

The annual Festival of Urbanism is a series of conversations where researchers, practitioners, community advocates and industry leaders come together to debate the threats and opportunities facing our cities.

The 8th Festival of ‘endangered’ Urbanism featured a wide diversity of speakers and free online events across Sydney and Melbourne.  Brought to you by the Henry Halloran Trust with the assistance of the University of Sydney School of Architecture, Design and Planning, in partnership with Monash Art, Design and Architecture (MADA), the free panel discussions, films and podcasts focused on the existential threats facing urban environments from the global pandemic to social division, economic turmoil, and deepening climate risk.

City Road is revisiting five panel discussions from the festival.
