David Wilmoth in conversation


Emeritus Professor David Wilmoth is the director of Learning Cities International, a company advising on education and urban development. As a technocrat in the Whitlam government, David Wilmoth was never an average urban planner. Australia was in desperate need of structural reform to lift opportunities for the disadvantaged. An ‘anti-planner’ of the planning profession, David agitated for change. Eventually after spearheading educational ventures the world over he found the work he most enjoyed: combining education with urban strategy to form powerful learning cities. It wasn’t an easy journey, but David always had a plan.

David will be in conversation with Misha Coleman.
