Dr Guy Coulson (NIWA), Dr Ian Longley (NIWA) and Dr Jo Cavenagh (Landcare Research) presented an exploration of the conflicts and trade-offs between different policies intended to solve different problems. The intention was to start a debate on how these conflicts could be identified and resolved. Joining them was Tim Mallett from Environment Canterbury and Ted Taylor from the Greater Wellington Council.
The Centre for Sustainable Cities partnered with the NZ School of Government and ICLEI to host this very successful seminar on renewable energy uptake at a city level. International expert Dr. Eric Martinot, Nelson Mayor Kerry Marshall and Greater Wellington Councillor Paul Bruce provided presentations from a global to local perspective.
