June is finally here and the conference planning is coming together nicely. Landscape Architects and students from all over New Zealand have registered already which we’re thrilled about because we’ve got lots planned for you.
If you want to come, please register before June 15th, this really helps us with planning.
If you’re still thinking about it, read on…
You may have heard about the snow that's fallen recently, but don’t let that put you off travelling to Christchurch! Its already melting and the weather is usually pretty settled in the middle of the year.
After the major earthquakes that started here in Canterbury in September 2010, we heard from many experts in the news on TV and the papers. Dr Mark Quigley became a familiar face, explaining in plain language what was happening. ‘Mr Earthquake’ specialises in active tectonics and geomorphology at the University of Canterbury and will be presenting the science behind earthquakes and what New Zealand can expect in the future.
We have plenty of other local experts lined up to share with us their insights, especially the human factor of landscapes, including Neil Challenger, Craig Pocock, and Suzanne Valance. They will be seriously
interesting and thought provoking.
Rashi Gadekar is a counsellor / therapist based in Christchurch with plenty of first-hand experience working with stressed people and their recovery. She will be discussing how that affects your staff management, business practice and working with people.
But it’s not all talking. We have a bus tour planned too. We’ll be showing you through the Central City, Christchurch East and Lyttelton or Sumner.
All of these places are still fascinating to witness even after seeing them several times.
A truly unique insight into the bones of human habitats.
