Walking to 2040 - community resilience and pedestrians

You are invited to join us for a discussion on the importance of pedestrians to community resilience. Starting with a report back from the workshop of transport innovator David Engwicht we will look at how pedestrians contribute to community resilience and what we can do to foster resilience.

This is the second in a series of meetings to highlight important aspects of walking for the future of living communities. The first looked at footpath design.

David Engwicht was recently in Wellington presenting his inspirational workshop about creating vibrant neighbourhoods, prosperous shopping streets and magical public spaces. David was instrumental in creating Walking School buses, Traffic Tamers, and the Neighbourhood Pace Car, and has worked as Place Maker in Wodonga, Australia.

Meet on Thursday 5 May 2011 at 5.30 - 7pm at Wellington City Council meeting room 2.
