Our reliance and impact on the environment underline the need for sustainable urban environments, where biodiversity, water and society are regenerated.

The goal of the 2024 Congress is to catalyse the use of nature-based solutions in urban environments. By coming together as an international community with experience and expertise, we aim to progress action on climate resilience, both environmentally, socially and economically.” ~ World Green Infrastructure Congress (WGIC) 2024

Aramis and I will be attending the World Green Infrastructure Congress (WGIC) 2024 in September!

We greatly look forward to not only seeing and participating with our colleagues but also returning to this beautiful island nation – and hopefully finalizing our sightseeing plans in this amazingly diverse country from our visit in 2014. We’d love to finally visit the rich Maori heritage culture, see thermal geysers, and explore amazing underground caves filled with glowworms – among many other fascinating subjects. You can read about our amazing journey to Hobbiton if interested.
