What role or responsibility do built environment practitioners have in contributing to the conversation and implementation of concepts of Caring for Country and how does one facilitate consideration of sustainable practices within the contested place like a major metropolis like Melbourne?
Are initiatives like the City of Melbourne’s Urban Forest project, the type of innovative responses that can be further expanded to re-energise the notion of sustainability coupled with an Indigenous sensibility that acknowledges other knowledge systems?
