“I am pleased to advice that Latrobe City Council expresses its support of the project proposal; Latrobe City - Low Carbon Futures Design Competition”.

Clean Coal Victoria will aid in the promotion of the competition through the external industry networks”.
Charlie Speirs - Director of Clean Coal Victoria - DPI
“The ambition expressed by OUTR to engage industry, government, and the broader community will do much to raise awareness and discussion of the active role and value of design in strengthening Latrobe city future. We look forward to supporting you throughout the making of this project and wish it every success.”

“The future scenario design focus of this kind of work is central to the School’s strategic research direction and substantially aligned with the RMIT Strategic Plan in the areas of urban resilience and design. The OUTR team have an excellent track record in winning major urban sustainable design projects and have been recognised in multiple forums by their peers for the quality of their design work. This experience positions them well to structure an international design competition of this kind. The outcomes from the competition will provide excellent source material for further research projects looking at urban resilience and sustainability”.
Professor Richard Blyth - Head of School, Architecture & Design - RMIT University
“GCCN intends to explore a role for our organisation in this initiative, focused on providing support to assist with developing the project, provide linkages to relevant regional and state wide networks that can support and promote the project, and share learning from the project across the region”.

The broader concept of this Low Carbon Futures project was inspirational and of huge benefit personally. Research and investigation into this field was a huge part of our efforts, much greater than we could document and develop. We are full of ideas and enthusiasm.
