Symposium 2023


The Symposium emboldens built environment professionals to join the movement and think about how their work can promote social justice, cultural richness, and ecological restoration. The theme for our fifth Symposium is ‘Ambition to Action.’ We’ll bring together thought leaders, regenerative design experts and built environment professionals to help build momentum that turns into real change.


Date: 8-9th November 2023

Location:  Abbotsford Convent, Melbourne

The Symposium will take place over two days. Attendees will have a choice of tours and workshops around Melbourne followed by a before-after party. The second full-day program will be hosted at Abbotsford Convent.

Ambition to Action

The Symposium’s theme is ‘Ambition to Action’ is inspired by those that reach beyond sustainability and aspire for the best possible. Certified Living projects are proof that these ambitions can be realised. Through the Symposium, we hope to galvanise the industry to strive for the best and share ideas for how to turn ambition into action.
