Robin Taubenfeld of Friends of the Earth/Community Action Network will give an overview of concerns and opportunities from the perspective of groups involved in community-based responses to the Summit.

Helen Abrahams, Councillor for The Gabba Ward, will have details of the changes to traffic and pedestrian movement in the local neighbourhood.

Jackie Trad MP, Member for South Brisbane, will pay a flying visit from Parliament House to explain the State Government’s plans for the Summit.
