We recognise this is disappointing however it is our intention to reorganise this event when the situation stabilises. Thank-you for your support. We will keep you posted as our plans and contingencies develop.


The growth of urban communities is one of the major trends of this century. What are the big differences and surprising similarities about green space, transport and wellbeing issues faced in a recovering city like Christchurch and one of the world’s fastest growing cities, Dhaka? Find out with Dr Kate Prendergast -  Research Manager of UC’s Sustainable Citizenship and Civic Imagination group and postdoctoral fellow for CYCLES, and Mehedi Hasan - PhD researcher on the CYCLES project and Assistant Prof of Urban and Regional Planning at Jahangirnagar. 

How can we live well in cities so young people can flourish but not stress the planet? This is a question which research teams in 7 cities around the world are exploring. This event accompanies the research exhibition Ōtautahi Mataora - Christchurch Living about youth living well in low-carbon ways in Christchurch, New Zealand; London, UK; Delhi, India; Dhaka, Bangladesh; Makhanda, South Africa; Sao Paulo, Brazil and Yokohama, Japan.
