While Melbourne is constantly ranked the top of the world’s most livable city rankings, challenges such as population growth, digital disruption and technological innovation will continue to place pressure on Melbourne’s economic competitiveness and liveability.
The Committee’s work embraces three key pillars: Future Economy, Infrastructure and Sustainability, and Liveability and Urban Optimisation. Working with, and on behalf of our members, the Committee aims to ensure Melbourne’s challenges and opportunities are addressed in ways that keep our city vital, inclusive, progressive and sustainable. The expertise of our diverse membership from across Greater Melbourne’s major corporations, small and medium businesses, academic institutions, local government and not-for-profit entities, informs our input into policy and advocacy positions.
As a not-for-profit, member-funded entity, the Committee is politically independent and impartial. This allows us to freely and purposefully raise issues of importance to the growth and development of Greater Melbourne.
The Committee’s advocacy program will continue to draw upon the community and member’s expertise, to inform debate and policy, to meet tomorrow’s challenges today.
