Australia Perspectives on Infrastructure webinar

What causes communities to trust and support infrastructure projects (or not)? Find out in this exclusive ANU research briefing.

Webinar: Thursday 7 October 2021 - 12.30pm - 1.30pm (AEDST)

Join the ANU Institute for Infrastructure in Society (I2S) as we share insights from our latest research initiative - Australian Perspectives on Infrastructure.

At this exclusive research briefing we will share insights from 3500 Australian community members about their experiences inn infrastructure selection, planning, design and delivery.

Panellists - I2S Director Professor Sara Bice, Voconiq’s Dr Kieren Moffat and National Community Engagement for Infrastructure Forum’s Donna Groves, will then unpack the factors that community members say cause them to trust infrastructure proponents and to support or oppose major projects.

With stakeholder and community pressure reported to be one of the leading causes of major project delay this is a must-attend session for infrastructure professionals and policymakers alike.

Zoom details for this event will be supplied to registered attendees ahead of the event.
