Peri-Urban Potential webinar

media
posted on 2024-06-21, 04:04 authored by Shannon Davis
Rethinking the land around cities can tackle both our food and housing crises. This webinar will share research showing that we could improve our food, housing and wellbeing all at the same time by making the fertile whenua surrounding our cities more productive in sustainable ways. As Aotearoa's population grows, food and housing are currently 'competing' with each other for land space - with the urban sprawl of expanding cities eating up the best lands for food production. Instead, we could design differently to provide both areas for local food production and new housing. The purpose of this webinar is to help decision makers, such as local councils and town planners, think outside of 'business as usual' when it comes to providing food and housing. By making different choices for how we use the fertile whenua surrounding our cities, the research shows we can benefit both urban and rural communities simultaneously, including Māori communities. Speaker: Shannon Davis Shannon is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Landscape Architecture, Te Whare Wānaka o Aoraki | Lincoln University. Also a research leader within the Centre of Excellence: Designing Future Productive Landscapes, her research focuses on urban and peri-urban agriculture, and landscape planning.
