The Sustainable Urban Forest Management Symposium Series, a unique collaboration between Western Australian The Forever Project and world-leading consultancy Arbor Carbon, will be showcasing an exciting and innovative fusion of entertainment and environmental education on some of Perth's high profile open spaces. It will feature the latest and leading science, displays and interactive presentations, plants, products and community engagement strategies to help make greening plans a powerful force for positive change. Taking the harsh and hostile public space opposite City Farm and, in a fast-paced live performance, transforming it into a beautiful, resilient and engaging urban green space shows the vital role of trees and how quick and simple a transformation can be.

Combining the skills of expert landscapers and architects such as Sabrina Hahn and Mandy & Mike Bamford, an innovative suite of waterwise and productive plants, combined with recycled materials, will result in the creation of a funky post-modern community hub for everyone to enjoy.
