Video: Green Space in a Resilient City

We held a seminar with speakers Paul Blaschke, Myfanwy Emeny and Peter Gilberd. When we think of resilient cities do we consider the role of green space? Does the supply of adequate green space conflict or compete with other necessary components of urban infrastructure? What more would we want from our green spaces in a city like Wellington?

Video on Imagining Decolonised Cities or Indigenising the City

We held a seminar with speakers Rebecca Kiddle, Amanda Thomas and Morten Gjerde. What is a decolonised city? And how can we decolonise cities to provide services, amenities and good homes for diverse Māori and non-Māori whānau and communities? Imagining Decolonised Cities was an urban design competition that challenged people to imagine what a decolonised city might be like. View the event video.

We held a seminar with speaker Julian Crane. The human microbiome is a collection of microscopic organisms living in and on our bodies and each one of us has our own unique community of microbes, as individual as our fingerprints. But what do we know about the role of our microbiome in our health, and in particular in our immune system? View the event video.

Video: Investing for Sustainable Transport

We held a seminar with speakers Nadine Dodge and Kain Glensor. Transport is a huge contributor to total carbon emissions in New Zealand so it is an obvious area to focus on if we want to become a low carbon economy. But to what extent do central government transport policies support climate change mitigation? And why has it been so difficult to achieve cuts in carbon emissions in the transport sector?
