Canberra is expanding and expanding fast. We have the considerable challenge of meeting the needs of an increasing population without increasing our ecological footprint. But we also have an opportunity. With Canberra's compact size and unique governance, we have the potential to create a world-class sustainable, equitable and liveable city. How will the ACT meet the needs of both people and planet?
