Behavior change in the urban environment, using a systems approach, and focusing on the end user - human beings! Growing and respecting the cycle of society and engagement - education, capability, incentives, regulation and demonstration. How we can enable these approaches to create a demand for change
Whether it’s a product, a service, an idea or a principle,
we’re all selling something to someone in order to make change happen. In this
discussion, Matthew Cutler-Welsh will describe the philosophy and design of the
pro clima HUB, a purpose-built education facility for the construction
industry. How can we most effectively educate designers, builders and consumers
about the value of healthy, comfortable, efficient and resilient

Issues surrounding water quality and availability are increasingly topical throughout New Zealand. The Residential Water Use project aims to create a national benchmark and explore not only how much water is used in our homes, but also where in our homes water is being used. Quantifying how much water we use in our homes is an important step for understanding and supporting water efficiency strategies at a council and homeowner level. One such strategy that could be used to reduce a household’s dependence on network supply is greywater re-use. At present there is no national guideline for greywater re-use and one of the largest perceived barriers is risk to human health. Research that looks to assess the water quality of residential and commercial greywater sources to human health will also be discussed.
