Purpose-driven businesses and communities create opportunities for us to evolve how we live, work and play. So, how do we lay the foundations of a conscious city to maximise the human experience? In this episode of Talking Property, CBRE dives into how dynamic digital environments are forming the fabric of our future city.  

Natasha Mulcahy Director of ESG at CBRE sits down with Brett Leavy, Virtual Heritage Jedi, at Bilbie XR Labs to discuss the role country plays in creating conscious cities, how truly important the past is to our future and how we can use digital storytelling to contribute to the conservation and management of today’s environment. Through the Metaverse, Leavy is pioneering ways to recreate and map Indigenous landscapes for today’s citizens to explore, learn and appreciate a world before the first settlers.  

Each episode from this series takes place in the lobby of some of Sydney’s most iconic buildings and brings together our very own in-house experts with market leaders who are shaping our future cities.
