Julie Anne Genter

Transport and Urban Planning for People

PRESENTED ON MAR 28, 2014
IN AUCKLAND @ PKN_AKL_SPECIAL EDITION

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 Julie is working to implement people-oriented infrastructure, and remove outdated planning rules to make Auckland more efficient, liveable for its citizens.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.
