With world populations rising, climate change and resource strain, we need to focus on creating urban environments that are regenerative and sustainable. Students are challenged to imagine, design, and build cities of the future to address civic and social issues. They become change-makers in their own communities and contextualise their learning using immersive technologies.

Aligned to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, students work in groups to build their virtual city experience with 3D modelling software. The cities will be displayed on cutting edge holographic technology screens, highlighting the possibilities of a sustainable city of the future.
