Speaking are Rod Simpson (Environmental Commissioner, Greater Sydney Commission), Elizabeth Mossop (dean of the UTS design, architecture and building school) and Rob Roggema (professor of sustainable urban environments, UTS). Moderating the discussion will be Resilient Sydney’s chief resilience officer, Beck Dawson.
