Please register and come along to this very interesting public event organised at UTS, 1 August at 5pm, Great Hall, on the impact of teleworking on the urban environment.

As part of UTS 25th Anniversary celebrations, Institute of Sustainable Futures invites you to 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. 

Speakers:
Professor Ross Milbourne, Vice Chancellor UTS – Official welcome
Tim Williams, CEO Committee for Sydney – Smart cities need smart governance
Martin Stewart-Weeks, Cisco Consulting Services Public Sector (Asia-Pacific)– The international experience
Brad Krauskopf, CEO & Founder, Third Spaces Group – The business case
Sam Nickless, New Revenue Portfolio Manager, The GPT Group – Transport and place: future trends 
Professor Stuart White, Director ISF – Concluding address

Thursday 1 August 2013 begins 5pm sharp in The Great Hall at UTS, followed by networking drinks. Free entry but registration required (you can register here – bottom of the page). Event will also be live streamed for remote attendance.

Sponsors: Department of Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy; CISCO. Third Spaces, and GPT/LiquidSpace
