People Building Better Cities

People Building Better Cities exhibition and associated events

A well-travelled exhibition, which promotes the exchange of knowledge and dialogue on the challenges of inclusive urbanization and climate change, opens to the public in Christchurch on July 28.

Running from 28 July to 29 August 2015 at the Te Pūtahi Pop-Up Space in the Unimed Building at 163 Gloucester Street, the Christchurch edition of People Building Better Cities exhibition promotes participation and inclusive urbanization through its public programme, which includes discussions, lectures, professional development training and school workshops.

The public programme of associated events runs for five weeks, the highlight of which is a free public lecture on Thursday 30 July by visiting scholar and architect, Anna Rubbo (Center for Sustainable Urban Development, Columbia University). She will discuss how design and planning processes can promote equity and agency in city development.

All associated events are at 163 Gloucester St, unless otherwise noted. Events are free and open to the public, except the Participation Workshop.
