When we think about 'place' and 'place-making' in Aotearoa, we need to be much bolder and more ambitious, with an eye to the future we want to create. And this got us thinking...Could 'Blue Zones' be the key to unlocking our potential as a nation?

Inspired by Dan Buettner's work 'Live to 100: Secrets of the Blue Zones', we explore how we might shape our environments based on the insights learned from those habitats that nurture the longest living people on earth.

As part of the discussion we will cover:

  • The workscape as it stands now and why our thinking needs to change.
  • We will challenge traditional location drivers and propose a new set that are centred on people and communities
  • What does a lasting legacy look like in our communities?
  • The benefits of investing in the regions, including the creation of a more evenly dispersed innovation economy
