Building on the past
Can architecture be a tool for acknowledging Australia’s original inhabitants?
Roads less travelled
There are ways we can move towards zero-emissions transport in a post-COVID-19 Australian economy.
Episode 23: Renewables - Getting the green light
We're discussing how we can solve some of the challenges of getting renewable energy from solar, wind farms and hydro back into the grid.
Drink to that
Getting clean water to natural disaster areas can be difficult, but a simple water filtering device could circumvent the problem.
Let's talk about road pricing
With a resurgence in driving and a drop in public transport usage, we need to have a serious conversation about congestion charging.
Rewriting the climate story
Coronavirus and stimulus spending creates a golden opportunity for low-carbon transition.
A road more travelled
With many people now house-bound, internet problems that were annoying for typical domestic users have become major impediments to working from home.
Protecting our protected areas
Conservation sites are being compromised by commercial and population growth, putting pressure on ecosystems and threatened species.
From fields of green to a '20-minute city'
With Melbourne’s population continuing to boom, urban planners and academics have a vision for the city to become a network of connected communities where people will be able to walk or cycle to amenities.
Cycling injuries and deaths on the rise
Cyclists account for one in five hospitalisations for transport-related injures in Australia. And around 38 cyclists are killed each year.
Footpaths are a valuable space for everyday social activity and urban life, but their role is often overlooked in planning urban and public spaces.
Vicious cycle of resentment
A new study suggests the "dehumanisation" of cyclists could be contributing to acts of aggression towards them on the road.
A moving idea
We know overcrowded public transport is a major deterrent to using it, but a Monash lab is working to change that.
The silent threat to pedestrians
The growing popularity of electric cars presents an increasing risk to the visually impaired.
The fake news on public transport
Don't believe the hype when it comes to reports that driverless cars are the answer to our traffic problems.
New power and a world of panes
Technologies being developed using one of the planet's most abundant materials will be a game-changer in solar energy.
A communication change for the better
Governments around the world are turning to behavioural science to find better ways to persuade people to act.
Learning from London
As Melbourne's population continues to grow, building more roads isn't the answer to its transport woes.
From roadside to recovery
It took a coordinated effort to reduce Victoria's road toll from a peak of 1034 in 1969, but there's plenty of work still to do.
For the love of mangroves
A worldwide study shows that while wetlands are under increasing threat from global warming, rising sea levels and human population density, they're remarkably resilient – and Australia's are faring better than most.
Rebuilding Sulawesi after the earthquake
When the human scars of this devastating natural disaster have begun to heal, attention will need to focus on a more resilient built environment.
Steady as she goes for VAD
Voluntary assisted dying scaremongering is threatening to shut the door on important and much-needed access to VAD in other Australian states and territories.
Reducing the road toll on country roads
Flexible road barriers are being rolled out on high-risk Victorian roads after research showed they eliminated up to 90 per cent of fatal and serious crashes.
