Following six years of research, the Clean Air and Urban Landscapes Hub has contributed to making our air cleaner and our cities greener, more biodiverse and more liveable.
Cities are important environments that are home to millions of Australians. How can we make them better for people and for biodiversity? Our mission was twofold: to undertake multi-disciplinary research for practical outcomes, and to highlight Indigenous perspectives in urban environments.
Research expertise at the CAUL Hub covered air quality, urban ecology, urban planning, urban design, public health and green infrastructure, located at the consortium’s four partner organisations (the University of Melbourne, RMIT University, the University of Wollongong and the University of Western Australia).
Under the guidance of its Indigenous Advisory Group and a wide network of Indigenous contributors, the CAUL Hub worked to develop a cross-cultural and cross discipline approach to Caring for Country in cities.
