City Futures Research Centre UNSW Built Environment

About Us

Our work advances the understanding of Australia’s cities, their people, the policies that manage their growth, and their impacts on our society and economy. Our research informs solutions to major urban challenges of city equity, productivity, sustainability, resilience, governance and renewal. The Centre works in partnership with government, industry and not for profit sectors, and with communities, to address these issues.

Since its establishment in 2005, City Futures has provided a training ground for the next generation of urban thinkers, city shapers, and urban scientists. We provide ethical, evidence-based inputs to contemporary urban policy debates and the planning of Australia’s future cities. The Centre is committed to the United Nations New Urban Agenda in creating a  shared vision for a better and more sustainable future and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with a strong focus on Goal 11 – Sustainable  Cities and Communities.
