Drivers of urban change: Seminar on video

What’s driving urban change in your city? We held seminars and interviews in Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington Region, Christchurch and Dunedin with researchers looking into issues of urban development, housing, transport and environment, and with political decision-makers who shape our urban life. Videos of the Wellington event and the Drivers of Urban Change report are now available to download.
