Talking Cities

Talking Cities

Do you live in a city and wonder why it works the way it does? Talking Cities accesses the leaders creating, shaping and improving the cities we call home. Through candid conversation, find out how they are improving our economic, cultural and social epicentres.

If you could redesign your city, where would you start? After a devastating earthquake in 2011 Christchurch had this unique opportunity. Lianne Dalziel became Mayor of Christchurch in 2013 and talks about the redevelopment of the city. Find out why a central government department should run a city’s recovery and hear about an award winning model to capture 100,000 ideas from the local community and what lessons she’s learned along the way.
