The Cooperative Research Centre for Low Carbon Living has announced a PhD scholarship is available at the Faculty of Built Environment, UNSW for the Visions and Pathways 2050 project. The multi-university and industry partner project will explore and articulate visions, scenarios and policy pathways for a low carbon built environment.

The project will utilise a range of creative engagement strategies to gather stakeholder views of desirable future possibilities for Australian cities and urban living. Scenarios will be translated into communicable visions that can be used to build enthusiasm and take-up. Transition pathways for achieving these visions will be investigated in order to overcome barriers and manage the complex dynamics of resource/material, technical, economic, social and behavioural aspects of urban living.
