Future Proofing Melbourne

Keynote Address and Panel Discussion

As we grow more resilient to the challenges of a new normal, how can we be best placed to future-proof our cities?

Recorded in July 2021 in Melbourne Museum's iconic Melbourne Gallery, a space that brings to life the history of the city, a panel of thought leaders including Sally Capp, Lord Mayor of Melbourne, discussed key facets that ensure a city's resilience - now, and into the future.


Part of Siemens' Technology with Purpose Victorian Delegation, the evening opened with a keynote address from Sally Capp, followed by a panel discussion that looked at how today's cities can build resiliency in a COVID-19 affected world: from sovereign capability to the manufacture of mRNA vaccines and other pharmaceuticals; to purpose built, hi-tech smart quarantine and smarter and healthier infrastructure.
