The outline for the talk was:

"If metropolitan Melbourne is to successfully transition to become a low-carbon city and become more resilient to the impacts of changing climatic conditions then we will need to rethink how we plan and design our city now and in the future. Designing our buildings, neighbourhoods and suburbs to adapt to and mitigate against the adverse impacts of climate change - be it, more days of extreme temperatures, rising sea levels around our coastline, more floods or more bushfires - requires effective action at the local, metropolitan and state-wide  levels."
