Our City, Our Square is convened by Citizens for Melbourne Inc.
Citizens for Melbourne is a mix of everyday Melburnians - architects, urbanists, planners and lovers of public space, arts and culture. Citizens for Melbourne launched in January 2018 and is 100% volunteer and 100% non party-political. We’re not hippies, NIMBYs, Luddites or a front for anything else.
We are also hardworking. Here’s how we campaigned in 2018.
Citizens for Melbourne believes that changes to public spaces must be transparent, follow democratic processes and deliver broad public benefits. We’re not anti-Apple - we oppose any takeover of our precious and dwindling public spaces. (Note the emphasis on public.)
The convenors of the Our City, Our Square campaign are Tania Davidge, Brett de Hoedt, Shelley Freeman, James Lesh, Melinda Ovens, Michael Smith, Kerrin Jefferis and Rohan Storey.
