Event Description

Building Nations 2023

07 June 2023 - 08 June 2023

Building Nations 2021 presented us with a fork in the road, where we chose a bold path forward for New Zealand’s infrastructure.

Last year, we envisioned a 2050 built on smart decisions that reform hurdles, embed strategic and efficient decision making, and realise the development of the country’s most-needed infrastructure. Resilience was front of mind as we discussed and debated a system capable of achieving our shared ambitions.

In June, let’s turn these ambitions into action. We will look at the practicalities of delivering the infrastructure that New Zealanders urgently need within the context of massive system change and commit to bold action as we head into a national election. Progress that can’t wait.

Join us at Building Nations 2023 on 7 - 8 June in Christchurch at Te Pae Convention Centre to debate and discuss the moves we urgently need to make – from ambition to action.

Retrofitting our towns and cities: density, suburbia and the future

28 June 2023

New Zealand's cities are fundamentally suburban, not urban, by global standards. Life in density - especially density done well - is foreign to most Kiwis, yet it's essential for our future.

How best can we galvanise change, and accelerate building the denser places we need?

Join us to hear some of New Zealand's foremost city-shapers on how Wellington can meet this challenge.
