"Hei Puāwaitanga- Future Flowering: legacy politics for a changing world"
In a period of far reaching environmental, social and economic change, how can legacy thinking and intergenerational action help all citizens to flourish and new visions of deeper democracy, a green environment and a sustainable economy to flower?
Dr Bronwyn Hayward is senior lecturer in political science at the University of Canterbury and author of the book 'Children, Citizenship and Environment: Nurturing a democratic imagination in a changing world' (Earthscan, Routledge: London). She is a trustee of the London charitable thinktank Foundation for Democracy and Sustainable Development, a visiting research fellow with the UK Sustainable Lifestyles Research Group, co researcher with the University of Oslo's Voices for the future: Norwegian young people in a changing climate and spokesperson for Christchurch Child Poverty Action Group.
This lecture honours Rod Donald: Former Green Party Co-leader, community activist, and a friend of Christchurch. It gives a prominent speaker an opportunity to address issues close to Rod's heart that continue to demand our attention.
We look forward to you joining us for this important occasion.
