The UTCs will be day-long workshops based upon discussions and the development of action plans for Cairns and Townsville with the input and active participation of multiple stakeholders including government, professionals, academics and community in general. The event will count on the participation of Mr Charles Wolfe through an awarded Fulbright Specialist Program grant by the United States of America Government.

Results of the event will be presented to Cairns Regional Council and Townsville City Council and a final report for each city will be produced for the United Nations addressing prospective policy, planning and regulatory response.
