“That gibberish he talked was Cityspeak, gutter talk, a mishmash of Japanese, Spanish, German, what have you. I didn’t really need a translator. I knew the lingo, every good cop did.
Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford), Blade Runner
CitySpeakers Stephen and Greg want to make a difference and inspire others to be the change they want to see in their cities.
CitySpeak Australia is about how to make a great city and create better outcomes for people and places. It explores quality urbanism from around Australia and the world in a different take mixing insights, experiences and fun.
Urbanism spans urban planning, urban sociology, design and governance. We infuse it with science, art, technology and culture. This plays out differently in different cities, but there are some common formulae. We explore what this means for our cities, states and nations.
How we as citizens engage all levels of government, our communities and corporations in the complex systems that influence cities will have far reaching implications for not only Australia, but the urbanised future our planet inevitably faces has far reaching implications, not only for Australia, but the rapidly urbanising future of our planet.
