In Australia and around the world most of us live in urban areas; by 2050 70% of the world’s population is predicted to live in cities and townships. More than ever we need to plan and manage green cities that foster our health and wellbeing and contribute to social, cultural and environmental resilience.
UrbanGreening@RMIT is a cross-school, cross-disciplinary network of more than 80 academic staff across 20 disciplines in 15 schools, committed to tackling these challenges. We bring powerful research capabilities to address issues such as urban development, environmental sustainability, community inclusion, and climate change for urban areas.

We foster collaboration and holistic approaches with partners from community, industry and government. We believe practical and innovative solutions come from combining skills and expertise across a range of disciplines, such as art, architecture, design, ecology, education, engineering, community engagement, health, spatial analytics, and sustainable planning, policy and governance - to name just a few.
