Dynamic Regions

The Regional Cooperation and Development Forum allows for the sharing of ideas and opportunities through both a mix of academic and practitioner insights, and is the official venue for the launch of the annual State of the Regions Report.

Change is fast upon us. What regional opportunities are emerging from shifting demographics and new forms of communication? With case studies from industry experts, facilitated sessions and Q&A panels, this year’s forum focuses on:

  • Housing – making it affordable;
  • The digital revolution – and the promise of improved communications
    • Digital readiness and the potential for greater social connectivity in large, geographically-dispersed communities
  • The arts – its role in generating socio-economic change.
