Mayor to present future of Wellington to its future citizens

Wellington Mayor Celia Wade-Brown is to host a special presentation of the Wellington 2040 long term strategy for the future generations of the city.

It will be held Midday Friday August 12, at Wellington City Council Chambers, first floor of the Wellington Town Hall.

Students and teachers from Wellington region schools, the Youth Council, and the region’s tertiary institutions were invited to join the Mayor in one of the Capital City’s most significant and historical venues.

Mayor Celia Wade-Brown will take the audience through an audio-visual presentation and take questions at the conclusion. The event will take no more than an hour, with food and refreshments provided.

Media are encouraged to attend and report on the event. For the public limited space is still available for anyone who would like to attend, please call the Mayor’s office 801 3102 to register.

Wellington 2040 sets out a vision for the future of Wellington City, building on the city’s existing strengths – such as its natural beauty, vibrancy, compactness, close-knit communities and people.

It’s a vision for a smarter and stronger economy, based on knowledge, skill and innovation to provide a wider range of exciting and rewarding jobs. It is based on stronger connections between people and businesses both within the city and around the world.

It’s a vision for Wellington as a leading eco-city, moving towards a low-carbon future based on ‘green’ innovations that also provide an economic edge and support an outstanding quality of life. Above all, it’s a vision that positions Wellington for the future – one that's smart and green.

So it makes sense that Wellington’s future generation understands Wellington 2040 and has a stake in how that strategy is shaped and implemented.

Submissions for Wellington 2040 close Friday August 19. Further information is available at www.wellington2040.co.nz
