Low Carbon Resilient Futures: Learnings from the Victoria Ecoinnovation Lab (VEIL)

Visions and Pathways 2040 is a project aiming to develop visions, scenarios and pathways for transitioning to low-carbon and resilient futures in Australian cities. The project uses participatory and design-led methodologies to engage partners and stakeholders from the industry, government and research organisations in identifying disruptive technological, social, organisational and institutional innovations that are currently emerging and which can assist in creation of not-business-as-usual futures.

In this webinar, Dr. Idil Gaziulusoy presented the progress achieved in the project so far and will run an interactive session inquiring into the futures of three largest New Zealand cities using the four prototype scenarios generated by the researchers and stakeholders.

Presenter Dr. İdil Gaziulusoy is a Principal Researcher at the Victorian Eco Innovation Laboratory (VEIL), part of the Melbourne School of Design. She has worked in Turkey and New Zealand, and with a background in engineering (B.Sc.), industrial design (M.Sc.) and sustainability science (Ph.D.).

Dr. Gaziulusoy is an academic traveller in more ways than one. Her research has focused on cross-fertilising design theory with insights from sustainability science, futures studies, theories of transitions and system innovations.
