Scaling up Sustainably

Housing in New Zealand faces many challenges – not least reversing the health impacts of low-quality homes while meeting exploding demand. How do we resolve these thorny issues to create resilient, liveable homes and communities?

The biennial Sustainable Housing Summit is your opportunity to hear about inspiring international and local projects, innovative solutions, and models that work. Join us to be informed and inspired, and to network with like-minded peers around the critical challenges and opportunities facing housing in New Zealand.

Join us to hear from our knowledgeable and thought-provoking speakers from New Zealand around the world:

Greenest City on Earth: Glimpses from Vancouver

Andrea will share insights on how the city is leading on urban sustainability and resilience. Andrea was awarded the Queen's Jubilee medal in recognition of her leadership role on this initiative.

A pioneer and innovator in the field of sustainable communities as well as an electrifying speaker, Adam will share insights from his extensive work in the USA and globally.

Precinct Infrastructure: The key to effective urban transformation

Density challenges and stresses our urban fabric: it affects social and community services, policy and planning reform, and how we realistically change and run essential infrastructure.

Drawing on Australian urban renewal projects such as Central Park, Parramatta Square, North West Rail Link and Newcastle Urban Transformation Program, Richard will consider opportunities and roadblocks for effective urban transformation. He will also explore how an integrated approach to place-making, precinct utilities, transport infrastructure and development can support sustainability outcomes in New Zealand.
