Paths Connecting Cities

BY ANDY SMITH
@ PKN_AKL_SPECIAL EDITION ON MAR 28, 2014

Advocate at Walk Auckland Andy Smith speaks of the tragic history of the Auckland Harbor Bridge — once planned to include bike and foot paths, but built as a four-lane automobile bridge — and the numerous campaigns that were launched by cyclist and walker groups to implement a connecting path. Pressure lead to an innovative solution: a tube/tunnel suspended from the clip-on just under the bridge, away from traffic, and offering majestic views of the city.

Urban Food Forests

BY JAMES SAMUEL
@ PKN_AKL_SPECIAL EDITION ON MAR 28, 2014

Advisor at Ooooby James Samuel discusses the unsustainable industrial methods in which food is produced, its impact on the environment, and the resulting low quality products. He goes into depth on a few projects working to source fresh food for the growing city populations the world over.

Transport and Urban Planning for People

BY JULIE ANNE GENTER
@ PKN_AKL_SPECIAL EDITION ON MAR 28, 2014

As Julie Anne Genter — a Green Party member of New Zealand parliament — says, people need to get around the city, but there aren’t many choices. Cars take up a lot of space, create congestion, cost a lot of money, and make cities more dangerous for pedestrians and cyclists. Julie is working to implement people-oriented infrastructure, and remove outdated planning rules to make Auckland more efficient, liveable for its citizens.

"Presentation of the Day" on June 5, 2014.
