On Saturday I was involved in the Pathways to Resilient Communities event, held at Te Papa.

The event was organised by a group of committed people, including members of transition towns groups, Regional Councils, business leaders and other groups with an interest in supporting the development of sustainability over the broader region.

The event aimed to assess greater Wellington’s state of preparedness and develop ideas to improve our position, and I am pleased to say that the four scenarios that we developed for our recent report Four Futures for New Zealand in 2058 formed the basis of scenarios presented on the day. I presented on Scenario Two: An Island Paradise, but back to the Jungle, the slides of which are available here.

The day was a great success, and I look forward to seeing what develops from the great thinking that emerged.
