David Engwicht presentation to Grey Lynn 2030
We are really fortunate to have David booked to give a presentation on Saturday 11 July 1.30 – 3pm at St Columba’s Church Hall, Surrey Cres, Grey Lynn.
Some of you will already have heard about the phenomenal David Engwicht, considered one of the world’s most innovative thinkers about cities, traffic, urban design, community development and place making. David is widely thought of as one of the founding advocates of alternative ways to calm traffic and widely known as the inventor of the Walking School Bus, which has been adopted worldwide.
Most recently, David has been focussing on the psychology of placemaking – fusing urban psychology with urban design. Back home in Australia he is working as Placemaker in a small rural city putting his ground-breaking approach into practice, transforming a run-down, neglected main street into a lively and exciting heart of the city.
David will be taking a special look at Grey Lynn and ideas for our community.
If you are interested in attending it is essential to RSVP by Thursday 10 July as spaces are limited. Please send an email to Pippa Coom firstname.lastname@example.org with Attendance at David E in the subject.
