Urban Upright together with the professional association Urban Innovation Australia (UIA) are a small part of a big change sweeping the world. ‘Urban Innovation’ is arguably the biggest revolution happening in the world today, holding the potential for significant economic benefits to the adopters of these ‘innovations’. Like most real innovations in their early stages, the changes occurring are not readily apparent to all. Some places will win, others in sticking steadfast to the status quo will lose.
Urban Upright and UIA is working to bring about greater prosperity for local area governments, other stakeholders and the public at large in transitioning away from a now redundant model of the urban environment, a model that does not create wealth but rather diminishes it.
