In 2012, Ideas for Melbourne will be the talk of the town.
With city elections looming in 2012, we’re kicking off this year’s programming by turning the spotlight on some of Melbourne’s biggest civic issues. Over the course of a week, we’ll be asking the city’s most controversial questions, giving you the chance to ask the city’s best placed commentators, experts and policy-makers the questions that will decide this year’s elections. Our aim is simple: to generate public conversation on the issues that matter to Melbournians most.
The capital of what used to be known as the garden state is graced by green wedges and a cool climate – but for how much longer? Adam Morton, Kelly O'Shanassy and Kirsten Larsen discuss.
