“New Zealand is undergoing a transformational stage of urban development.
“The Story of City and People” is an opportunity for urban planning and development professionals to join a study trip delegation to China hosted by the New Zealand China Friendship Society. It will involve visiting Chinese cities with an experienced professional mentor to gain first hand experience on lesson learnt and best practices in urban planning, in particular the role of human-centered design approaches to placemaking.
The group will visit Qingdao, Guangzhou and Shanghai over 10 days, meeting with peer professionals and also high level industry representatives, proving opportunities to draw parallels to the urban development history and development of New Zealand. Through this programme New Zealand and Chinese urban development professionals will grow their network, better understand each other’s culture and environment, share knowledge about innovation, challenges and successes, and commemorate legacy.
Application closes on 30 March 2018.
