Event Details

Today, neighbourhoods and communities are playing a crucial role in the everyday lives of Australians. Having a home away from home is more important than ever with over half (51%) of Australians agreeing their home goes beyond their physical house and 46% consider their neighbourhood in which they live a part of their home

How do we rethink design of communities, homes and the things that live within our homes to create a positive future for the collective? One where the world is a better place because of – not despite – how we consume things.

Experts from IKEA and leaders across interior design, sustainability, research and innovation will explore design-led approaches to creating better homes and communities for a better future.

We are at a pivotal moment in time where design can influence and lead change as our homes and community evolve. The panel will discuss how we need to rethink design in response to urbanisation, technology and the evolution of home and community.

The panel will provide examples as to what the future of could look like and how technology will shape what our future home and communities will look like. For example:

- What is the potential of open source architecture?

- How do we create a highly adaptive local community?

- What will the community of the future look like and how can we make resources more available and communities more self-reliant?

- What is the future of the items in our homes?
