Ultimo, NSW — As part of UTS 25th Anniversary celebrations, Institute of Sustainable Futures is holding a public forum on teleworking and sustainability. Teleworking and smart work centres can reduce the time, stress and cost of daily commuting, reduce urban congestion, and reduce pressure on transport systems at peak commuting times. They can revitalise suburban and regional centres. Dr Damien Giurco of the Institute of Sustainable Futures is coordinating the Sustainable Digital Cities Network (SDCN), an informal network of urban and transport policy and planning professionals who are exploring the urban impacts of teleworking. Join this opportunity to exchange ideas on the future of how people in our cities and regions will work, live and travel. Attend in person or through live streaming. Registration required for this free event. Starts 5pm sharp.
