Lunch with Living Building Leaders | Te Kura Whare, NZ | 28 July-11 Aug

28 July at 12:00 pm - 11 August at 1:00 pm

$10 – $60

Is this just another boring 'lunch & learn'?

Nope! We’ll dive into the processes and stories from a variety of project contributors – part conversation, part ask-me-anything, and best of all you get to choose who to spend time with!

Who's coming for lunch?

In the last 3 weeks of the series we'll talk to the leaders behind Te Kura Whare - a stunning community project in New Zealand created with the intention of restoring pride in the Tūhoe culture and the inherent connection of Tūhoe people to the land, or mana tangata. The project has also achieved full Living Building Challenge certification.

WEEK 10, 28 July:

Join a live tour of the community centre in the township of Tāneatua, hosted by the team at Tūhoe - Te Uru Taumatua. Plus we speak with Jerome Partington, Associate Principal and Sustainability Manager at Jasmax, about the client journey and Living Building Challenge process.
