27 August at 8:30 am - 28 August at 1:00 pm

$80 – $200

2020 Summit Series | Oceania Biophilia Summit

The Oceania Biophilia Summit is an exploration of our innate connection to nature, and to each other. Together we will delve into the patterns and integration of biophilic design in the built environment, and collaborate in teams to shape effective connection experiences for a real life project.
This annual event was first held in Camp Glenorchy in New Zealand in 2019. This year we bring it to you online, in collaboration with Rākeiora - the Living Future NZ team.
It will be held as two half-day sessions, on Thursday 27th and Friday 28th August.
Registration is now open!

THE THEME: Prospect and Refuge

Prospect and Refuge is part of Stephen R. Kellert's 'Biophilic Design Elements and Attributes'. It refers to a psychological need to feel safe in a place of shelter and see into the distance to prepare for what comes next.
A timely and necessary concept to explore, given the global context.



A series of presentations and conversations to get the inspiration flowing and to explore the key factors in effective integration of biophilic principles.


Time to turn those ideas into solutions! Participate in a collaborative design sprint that will support a social housing project to improve health and wellbeing outcomes through biophilic design. 
This summit is approved for the following continuing education credits:
  • 8 General LFA CE credits

New Zealand Institute of Landscape Architects

CIBSE (8 hours if full summit attended)

And our Biophilic Design Initiative Principal Partner
