Changing individual behavior is crucial when looking towards a sustainable future. Goals, such as lowering greenhouse gas emissions, reducing waste, and increasing energy and water efficiency can only truly succeed through public participation. Therefore, how do you start to shift individual/ personal habits as well as entice the greater public to participate in small gestures with positive effects.

It is our belief that small changes can make a big impact

We propose five social actions to address food security within the Wellington City region, strengthening the importance of a socially sustainable environment. A sustainable city is one that is reducing its ecological footprint whilst simultaneously improving its quality of life. Equal rights to food security and all basic amenities
