Moving inland: Regional migration during COVID and beyond

Event Details

On 21 October 2021 the Centre hosted the webinar Moving inland: Regional migration during COVID and beyond moderated by Professor Katie Holmes.

Many regional centres are experiencing rapid population growth as people from capital cities move to regional areas in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This panel presents perspectives from planners, local government, and economics to explore benefits and tensions for communities managing the influx of new migrants. While we look closely at the Albury-Wodonga region, the discussion will have relevance for all regions wondering what lies ahead as their populations change.

Presenters:

  • Dr Kim Houghton, Chief Economist at the Regional Australia Institute
  • Mark Dixon, CEO at City of Wodonga
  • Frank Zaknich, CEO at Albury City Council
  • Professor Julie Rudner, La Trobe University Bendigo
