Net Zero Precincts

Net Zero Precincts is an ARC Linkage funded project, and part of Monash's Net Zero Initiative, that aims to help cities and urban regions reach net zero emissions. It is bringing together a new approach to transition management by using design anthropology to engage with the precinct community and consider their lived experiences. Net Zero Precincts aims to co-create and envision collective and shared pathways to net zero precinct futures which are aligned with the precinct community’s everyday social, political and experiential realities and expectations. In collaboration with a cross-Monash interdisciplinary team and partners from industry, academia and the community, the project is using Monash’s own Clayton Campus and the Monash Technology Precincts as a ‘living laboratory’ to run experiments that can help us accelerate the transition to net zero emissions cities.
