A conference

The Federal Minister Climate Change and Energy, Chris Bowen will be discussing climate change and emissions reduction at the 2023 National Local Roads, Transport and Infrastructure Congress, at a special breakfast event on 7 September. 

Mr Bowen will be joined by ALGA President, Linda Scott, local mayors and industry leaders.

This event, to be held at the Australian National University, will provide an opportunity to discuss the sector’s work with Mr Bowen, and how councils can help the Federal Government deliver on its climate change and renewable energy priorities and targets, including achieving net-zero emissions by 2050. 

2023’s congress, from 6-7 September, includes a broader focus on community infrastructure, encompassing renewable energy deployment and integration, innovations in active transport, waste and recycling, affordable housing and resilient telecommunications. 

ALGA said it has assembled an impressive lineup of speakers, including Federal Minister for Local Government, Kristy McBain, who will speak at the Congress dinner, and Shadow Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Development, Bridget McKenzie. 

There will also be a range of experts in renewable energy, waste and recycling, active transport, road safety and freight, housing, and telecommunications. 

The keynote speakers for the congress include Natasha Bradshaw from the Grattan Institute, who will share the preliminary findings of their research into road funding in Australia, Associate Professor Ben Beck from Monash University who will present the latest trends in active transport, and Dr Ian Faulks who will share practical solutions for improving road safety on local roads.
