Site Tour: Parklands
Ahead of the 2018 Commonwealth Games, the Gold Coast's Parklands precinct marks a world class 6 Star Green Star rated community worth learning valuable lessons from.
Discover the precinct's green design elements, including the planting of 136,420 trees across the site, re-establishing a natural creek and flood plain and creating large green spaces that will effectively decrease water and energy consumption.
Aside from the positive environmental impacts, this site tour will also unpack how community engagement initiatives can boost your Green Star rating. From partnering with Southport Special School, to launching its own Reconciliation Action Plan, learn how people are integral to the transformation of the sustainable built environment.
To minimise emissions, there will be a bus departing from Brisbane CBD to transport attendees to the Gold Coast and back. Please advise the GBCA Events Team (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you will be making your own way to the site tour and thus won't be on the bus.
