UQ City Impact Lab

Planning fairer, greener cities for all


The UQ City Impact Lab works with government and industry to build fairer and greener cities.

We link world-leading research and capability in urban change, sustainable development and city-making with government and industry. 

We work collaboratively to unlock innovative future-focused solutions to economic, social, environmental and governance challenges that impact our neighbourhoods, cities and regions.
