Sustainable cities | French model draws NZ interest [fr]
New Zealand journalists Jamie Morton and Simon Wilson have recently returned from a visit to France. A series of their articles look into sustainable cities initiatives with potential for New Zealand’s urban centres.
France’s capital, Paris, has been particularly active in this field as it presents its bid to host the 2024 Olympic Games.
Sustainable transport, energy efficiency and environmentally-friendly construction techniques are among those discussed on The Spinoff and in the New Zealand Herald. The articles are all available online:
