The Future City

Welcome to Your Future City!

In the Future City Podcast, we speak with extraordinary people you normally wouldn’t hear from about the future of cities. From cocktail artists to urban planners, green thumbs to financial analysts, we share stories about how these creative thinkers and doers are shaping the cities you live in.

Obviously, the views expressed here are our own not those of our employers.

How can we increase people’s connection to nature, and make our cities greener, healthier and more sustainable? In today’s episode we speak with the Honorable David Speirs MP. He is the Minister for Environment and Water and serves as a Member of Parliament in South Australia, Australia’s 4th Largest state.

As you’ll hear, Dave is a passionate advocate for the environment and we discuss practical ways to change our cities for the better. As one of Australia's youngest Government Ministers, he has led multiple reforms focused on the environment, including the ban on single use plastics, an Australian first, and enabling people to more easily experience the environment in their neighbourhood.
