Uncovering Urban Inequity: Perth’s Imperative for Change

17 April 2024 @ 07:00 - 09:00 AWST

In cities, urban equity is achieved when all residents, regardless of their socio- economic background, enjoy equal access to vital services such as education, healthcare, transportation, housing, green spaces, and job opportunities.
Yet, recent research indicates a concerning decline in urban equity compared to previous generations, uncovering new dimensions of inequality. Join us for an insightful discussion led by Kate Meyrick, a visionary strategist deeply passionate about urban development. Kate will explore the intricacies of urban equity, its profound impact on livability, and the long-term competitiveness of our cities.
Going beyond conventional wealth distribution measures, she’ll examine how disparities in access to healthcare, transportation, digital infrastructure, green spaces, and essential amenities shape both the current quality of life and the future prospects of Australian cities and communities.
Come discover where Perth stands in the pursuit of urban equity and gain valuable insights into actionable steps to enhance equity and pave the way for a resilient future.
