Green Space in a Resilient City.

Parks and green spaces are easily overlooked in our earnest discussions about urban resilience, but in fact they contribute enormously to city residents’ wellbeing and quality of life. High quality, accessible green spaces should be regarded as just as important a component of urban infrastructure as clean water, efficient transport and waste disposal.

This talk summarises New Zealand and relevant international research on green space in New Zealand cities, Wellington City in particular: their importance, distribution and accessibility.

Speaker:
Paul Blaschke is an independent environmental consultant and teacher based in Wellington. An ecologist by training, Paul is involved in a wide range of environmental restoration, assessment, and research projects, both professionally and as a member of local environmental groups, and lectures in environmental studies and environmental health at Victoria University of Wellington and the University of Otago, Wellington.

His research interests centre on urban ecology and the roles of green space in urban resilience. He is a member of the New Zealand Centre for Sustainable Cities.
