Sydney is Liverpool’s first waterfront partner

SYDNEY has been unveiled as the first city partner whose speaker will address the Liverpool International Waterfront Forum (LIWF) 2015.

The LIWF is returning after its inaugural event took place as part of the Government-backed International Festival for Business 2014
LIWF is a global platform for waterfront cities to come together to discuss common themes and build strong international alliances.

The concept – created  in a partnership between Liverpool Waterfront Business Partnership and international consultancy Arup – will be hosted at the Cunard Building on Liverpool’s iconic Pier Head, on June 3 and 4.

The topic for discussion at the LIWF 2015 will be “exploring the role of culture and place making” as tools for fostering growth of waterfront cities.

Anita Mitchell, general manager sustainability for Lendlease, will represent the $6bn Barangaroo South waterfront urban renewal project in Sydney.

Barangaroo South is Sydney’s largest urban renewal project since the 2000 Olympics and one of the most significant waterfront transformations currently underway anywhere in the world.
