Upcoming seminar series: Learning from the sister city (Brisbane-Semarang)

UQ|UP is organising a series of seminars in collaboration with the Brisbane City Council in Australia and Universitas Diponegoro and the Semarang City Government in Indonesia. We seek to foster a dialogue between Brisbane and Semarang, which have been sister cities for thirty years.

There are three seminars in the series, each discussing a topic relevant to both cities. Seminars will be presented by guest experts and followed by comments from two discussants.

  • Seminar 1: Disaster management and responses from Brisbane and Semarang – 17 March – 1:00-2:45pm (Brisbane time)
  • Seminar 2: Urban growth and housing in Brisbane and Semarang – 6 April – 1:00-2:45pm (Brisbane time)
  • Seminar 3: Smart city development in Brisbane and Semarang – 11 May – 1:00-2:45pm (Brisbane time)

Seminars will be delivered both online and in person (in Indonesia).
