Darwin Living Lab Symposium 2022: Knowledge into Practice

3 August 2022

Join us in person, on 3 August, as we bring together the most creative minds to improve Darwin’s liveability, sustainability and resilience.


We are pleased to announce the 2022 Darwin Living Lab Symposium, which will focus on translating knowledge into practice.

The Darwin Living Lab (the ‘Lab’) seeks to improve Darwin’s liveability, sustainability, and resilience. We are doing this through heat mitigation and improved urban design for the wet/dry tropics.

The Lab brings together scientific expertise with local knowledge to evaluate innovations for a cooler and more sustainable Darwin. One of our main objectives is to help local practitioners share knowledge, and to develop awareness of the cooling initiatives and research underway through the Darwin City Deal and the Feeling Cooler in Darwin Heat Mitigation and Adaptation Strategy.

The one-day symposium is a chance to learn more about the Lab’s research and how this knowledge can be applied locally. Like the inaugural symposium in 2019, it offers an invaluable opportunity to engage with a diversity of local perspectives with an interest in creating a cooler, more liveable, and sustainable Darwin.

As an added extra, the evening before the Symposium we will also be running a walking tour of heat mitigation approaches in Darwin, followed by refreshments in the city. We’re inviting professionals and practitioners, peak industry representatives, community interest groups, and researchers.
