Landcom manages a research and learning program through our Sustainability & Learning team. We consider it a vital way to enrich learning outcomes, improve standards of urban design and social planning by developing and maintaining strategic relationships with the education sector including schools, vocational education and training providers and universities.
As the NSW Government’s land and property development organisation, Landcom is responsible for creating innovative and productive places that demonstrate global standards of liveability, resilience, inclusion, affordability and environmental quality. Effective research and learning initiatives help us to achieve our goals.
What we do
At Landcom, we’re committed to research and learning as a way to share the outputs from our cross-disciplinary collaborative research projects, which address complex urban challenges.
We work with educational and research institutions to develop programs and resources that have positive and enriching learning outcomes for students, teachers and academics. These initiatives ensure students and early career academics at all stages of their learning have the unique opportunity to be involved in Landcom projects.
Another benefit of working with the education sector is being able to more easily connect with students, who are the future workers and residents of our city. We believe their aspirations, ideas and innovations are critical in shaping great places for future generations that offer the best standards of urban design and social planning. By collaborating on two-way research and learning initiatives, our projects offer a unique educational legacy and help expand innovation, skills and knowledge in the areas of urban development.
