Transiting Cities Competition - call for entries

An international design competition is calling for entries to help transition the Latrobe Valley in Victoria into a low-carbon future. The competition closes on 30 November and is targeting the revitalisation of small towns, potentially rehabilitated mines and associated infrastructure. The project is sponsored by RMIT University's Office of Urban Transformations Research Laboratory in the School of Architecture and Design, Latrobe City Council, the State Department of Primary Industries Clean Coal Victoria Unit and the Gippsland Climate Change Network.

It's a big issue to tackle - amid the barrage of calls to shut down Hazelwood, what kind of future awaits those who live and work in this region that for years has contributed substantially to the State's economy?

Registration is relatively inexpensive (unlike some recent local competitions of late) and there are cash prizes - to register and find out more, visit the website
