Unleashing Auckland; new approaches to urban development

Unleashing Auckland; How new approaches to urban development can get our biggest city moving again!

Thu 16 July

We are about to finalise a great session, but are still awaiting the final confirmation of all speakers. We can tell you that we have:

• a leading economic commentator with his ideas for the city

• a great journalist who can comment on the city that can be better

• and we are in talks with further speakers who have a stake in the future of this city.

We will get the details out by the end of next week. The plan is that we will bring together the aspirational thinking of a range of people on what the city could be if it were to get past its problems with housing and transport. There is no shortage of people pointing out the problems but who has the image of what the smart, better, liveable, and progressive Auckland could look like. What would be the picture if the mana and capacity of this huge urban habitat was restored?

Furthermore we are very mindful that policy inertia perpetuates deeper flaws perpetuating poor health, poverty and inequality.

When & Where

Auckland, Wednesday 16 July 6.30pm - 8.30pm Lecture Theatre 3, Owen G Glenn Building, Auckland University
