New Zealanders need to start more actively dealing with urban issues

"'It is essential that New Zealanders start dealing much more actively with urban issues,' asserts Professor Harvey Perkins, recently appointed Director of Transforming Cities: Innovations for Sustainable Futures (formerly, Transforming Auckland) and Professor of Planning.

'We need to embrace the ideas of 'urban sustainability and liveability',' notions he explores in his most recent publication, Place, Identity and Everyday Life in a Globalizing World, co–authored with Professor David Thorns. This work followed a series of jointly published articles with colleagues at Lincoln University and The University of Auckland critically examining the ways in which sustainability thinking has been interpreted and incorporated in urban planning in New Zealand."

The Revival of Psychogeography

"Psychogeography is hot. Guy Debord, founding member of Situationist International and the man who coined the term in 1955, defined the phenomenon as 'the study of the precise laws and specific effects of the geographical environment, consciously organized or not, on the emotions and behavior of individuals'. In fact, psychogeography is the art of strolling, or just about anything that gets pedestrians off their predictable paths and leads them to a new awareness of the urban landscape. Recently we've seen a remarkable psychogeographic revival driven by several artistic urban projects and smartphone applications."

Christchurch's new Central City Plan published

"The draft Central City Plan has been developed and written from the 106,000 ideas shared by our community during the six–week Share an Idea campaign.

This includes all ideas shared through the website, the two–day Community Expo attended by 10,000 residents, the public workshop series 450 residents participated in, meetings with various key stakeholders and discussions with councillors, interest groups and professional institutes. The draft plan also takes into account the work Council had already done to revitalise the Central City and other relevant Council policy."

(Christchurch City Council, 2011)

"Fifteen urban designers, business leaders, arts and tourism representatives, geo–tech experts, architects, environmentalists, students and a Central City resident for 57 years will share their ideas for Christchurch's Central City in the Speakers' Corner at this weekend's (14 and 15 May) community expo."

(Rebuild Christchurch, 14 and 15 May 2011)

[It's not very often that whole cities are re–designed as is the case with Christchurch in Aotearoa New Zealand. While earthquakes continue to shake the region Christchurch residents are making plans for the future. The Christchurch City Council invited key stakeholders to present their perspectives as part of their public consultation process. In doing so Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology (CPIT) Dean Dr. Jane Gregg and Creative Industries Faculty Stakeholder Manager Martin Trusttum explain their vision for a "Creative Christchurch" based on the concept of precincts.]
