WHY SUBURBIA DOESN'T
NEED TO SUCK
Events | 13 08 2019
Our traditional live/work/shop/play landscape has changed forever. But sadly our suburbs haven’t adapted. We want to change that.
We believe in the power of place and that every suburb should be somewhere where people actually want to live. Which is why we’ve applied to speak at SXSW 2020 on the topic of: Why Suburbia Doesn’t Need to Suck. However, we need your support and votes to be chosen as a speaker.
By and large our suburbs are often little more than soulless dormitories that empty out when residents are forced to drive to the action. But it doesn’t have to be this way; the suburbs simply need to be reconsidered.
Andrew Hoyne’s passion for the power of place has lead him to travel the world to understand what makes a successful community. The result is a blueprint for reframing and repositioning our suburbs so they are more enticing and liveable. Using a series of ground-breaking case studies, Andrew will explain how the blueprint can be used to combat the many downsides of suburbia and understand the qualities needed to create socially and economically successful suburbs where people want to be.
So if you believe our suburbs can and should be more than soulless dormitories that empty out when residents are forced to drive to the action then please vote us UP here so we can inspire a global movement to create socially and economically successful suburbs. Thank you!
