The International research group for Sustainable Citizenship and Civic imagination: Hei Puāwaitanga, is a multidisciplinary research team and ‘civics-lab’, at the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand. The 21st century is the century of the city. By 2050, seven in ten people will live in an urbanizing area. Against this dynamic background, the research team, led by Associate Professor Bronwyn Hayward investigates citizenship and civic governance, participation and democratic urbanization, with a particular focus on sustainability & inclusion especially for children & youth.
