Waitakere: Eco City Preview

At the Alexandria Summit, Mayor Bob Harvey of Waitakere, New Zealand gave a presentation about his own city’s efforts to become an eco-city. He showed us a very pretty video of the eponymous mountains and some beaches, civic events and so forth, but I couldn’t find it to link for you. Instead, I found a video of their “Trash to Fashion” show. It began as school kids in Waitakere making costumes from waste, and has grown into… well, you’ll see. For your viewing pleasure: the trippy part of eco-cities. (Will this happen when Alexandria does her thing? I hope so.)

    No. *glumly*. They had a plate of half-muffins, but it’s hard to replace sugar-crusted spinkle wishes.
