    Event description

    As part of the High Life Expo, we are holding 3 online seminars across three evenings :

    Getting to yes!  Navigating good decision-making in owners corporations
    When: Monday 17 June, 6:00 - 7:30pm

    Navigating and making good decisions with your owners corporation can be one of the biggest challenges of apartment living. So how can we do it better?

    In this session, you’ll get an overview of the legislated decision-making process, as demanded by the Victorian Owners Corporation Act.

    But perhaps more importantly, we’ll explore what else could be done to smooth the path for a decision. What can help owners engage with the matter, understand and address different perspectives, and feel like they are moving forward together rather than breaking into factions.

    Speakers:  Julie McLean, Strata Community Association Victoria, Immediate Past President  |  Elena Pereyra, architect and co-chair of Cohousing Australia  |  Jeanette Corcoran, Director, Owners Corporation Network


    Naturally cool: planting for cooling, beautification, and connection in apartment buildings

    When: This event happened in the past. The recording will soon be available at

    Cooling your home in summer, beautification, social amenity for recreation and mental wellbeing, creating habitat for native animals and insects - there are so many reasons to bring nature into your apartment complex.

    In this session we’ll explore greening options for spaces and budgets of all shapes and sizes. Get insights and advice from greening experts about how you or your owners corporation could cultivate and enjoy a lush, green, apartment complex.

    And take a peak at the Docklands apartment building that’s been transforming spaces from gray to green.

    Speakers:  Dr Thami Croeser, Research Fellow, RMIT  |  Janette Corcoran, Chair, Victoria Point Owners Corporation  |  Geoff Heard, Managing Director, Fytogreen

    Waste not: how to reduce and optimise waste management and recycling in apartment buildings
    When: This event happened in the past. You can watch the recording here on the High Life Expo website.
