Future Living Conversations Thursday 10th

Now running during the day at The Western Community Centre 46 Hyde Ave Hamilton

Just go to the Training Room and we’ll have the kettle on!

Two different sessions each day -Why not bring your lunch and stay for both

Eco-design for building and renovation

 10.30 am to 12pm

Want to understand why most NZ homes are cold in winter? Want to retrofit or build a healthy home? This is the talk for you. Ian Mayes is leading our conversation about eco designing our homes and buildings. Ian Mayes is Hamilton's Eco Design Advisor who has 20 years general building experience and 10 years of Eco building. He is employed by Hamilton City Council to provide individual rate payers with sound sound advice to improve the sustainability of our homes. So this conversation is going to be full of practical advice and insights.

Resilient and Thriving Communities

12.30pm to 2pm

The people within a thriving community feel cared for, acknowledged, and yearn to give back to their community. A thriving community becomes greater than the sum of the parts. Resilient communities are capable of bouncing back from adverse situations. They can do this by actively influencing and preparing for economic, social and environmental change.

Sounds good but how do we help create these types of communities? Come along to our conversation on Thursday and discuss how, with a Waikato Time Bank member,  and Chris Hattingh from Civil Defense.
