There is a FuturePerth thread obviously in the W.A. forum but I thought it appropriate to create a thread here because it's actually made news!

The group is now official and had an article in todays West



For those interested, check out the FuturePerth thread in the W.A. section:

And here is the website, thanks to Alvse:

Congrats to the WA forum guys for making a difference.

I get calls & emails all the time asking for me to go work in Perth.

Seems Perth and Townsville have a big shortage of planners at the moment as I get calls from Townsville too.

I'm surprised that A Current Affair is not interested yet. The two shows have been like a mirror of each other for the last few years. So much for being exclusive.

Congrats on your work guys, it's great to see some initiative happening. :)

Perhaps FuturePerth can become a model for similar organisations in other cities too.

I agree. There was talk of spurring something like that on at my uni with the young planners but people were too lathergic. :(

we were actually hopeing something like that might happen, which is why we were looking at a name which didn't identify i specific location, like UrbanEvolution but the majority of the favourites were already taken, and FuturePerth won out.

But hopefully there could be FutureMelbourne, FutureBrisbane and the likes in years to come...

It an online Melbourne thinktank has been going for a while now, it's pretty interesting...
