Pyrmont Walk – Changing Places 

The Junior Pyrmont Walk delivers a case study highlighting the changing nature of the community of Pyrmont, factors that have given rise to these changes and the community's response to some of these changes.

Specifically focussing on economic, social and environmental sustainability of the Pyrmont area, students are encouraged to consider the likely implications of future development for the local community throughout the walk.
