    The aim of this presentation is to better understand the role of indigenous transport in potentially increasing resilience of individuals and communities in a developing city context. A face-to-face survey-based methodology of indigenous transport users and operators was undertaken to compare the perceptions of these actors across three cities in Southeast Asia: Baguio (Philippines), Ho Chi Minh (Vietnam), and Bandung (Indonesia) on their understanding of climate change, the role of indigenous transport in increasing resilience and their role in the overall transportation framework at the local community level in developing Southeast Asia. Bio-sketch Derlie joined UQ GPEM in 2010. Prior to that, she was involved in consulting and research in Southeast Asia as well as worked for QLD Transport and Main Roads. Her research interests include pedestrian research, urban design and transportation within the context of Southeast Asia.

        Cornelia Brierly, who was the oldest apprentice of Frank Lloyd Wright and worked on Broadacre City, gave an interview to us about her involvement on Frank Lloyd Wright's urban model Broadacre City. It was a candid interview about her involvement in the Wright Fellowship, her recollection on how Broadacre City was created and the reason why it started first, before urban sprawl was created in the 1950's. This interview was taken on March 13, 2012 and she passed away on August 24, 2012. This is a memorial video to her, her family and close colleagues who is has been inspired by her and the teachings of Frank Lloyd Wright about organic architecture and life.

            n Australian cities, new ‘greenfield’ suburbs are being built at a remarkable rate. These new suburbs are often well designed to suit the needs of their initial residents. Yet in a generation the demographic profile of local communities can shift radically. As residents change, neighbourhoods need to change with them – or they won’t be good places to live. Tomorrow’s suburbs argues that we must build in flexibility right from the start, and shows how it can be done. At this seminar the authors of the report, Jane-Frances Kelly and Peter Breadon, discussed the report’s recommendations.
