Tūranga (central library) in the Spark Place meeting room, ground floor


The Canterbury branch is excited to be partnering with our peers in UDF, NZPI and more to put on this event  – save the date of 10th November 2022!

Who is this session for?

Nau mai, haere mai – open to all members of the community, particularly those responsible for designing and constructing any aspect of our built environment, including, politicians, developers, planners, engineers and urban designers.

What is this session about?

Road safety and perceived safety are priorities for all public sector agencies and local communities. We all need to better understand and contribute to making our city more age-friendly for everyone whether they are 8 or 80 years old. Together the community and  professionals have a role to play in designing our built environment to deliver safer outcomes.

We will learn more about the lived experience of members of our community. This interactive session will introduce existing and newer audits, design guidance and how we can use them to create safer, inclusive and accessible environments for all. Focusing on ‘customer’ needs and using the design principles, we will challenge you to create inclusive designs for streets in Ōtautahi.

The workshop attendance cost is $10 for professionals, and free for students / advocates / unwaged. Lunch will be provided.

Come and learn from each other!
