The Sustainability Society

We are a national network that fosters sustainability in the built environment.

On Thursday 26th October 2023 we hosted our inaugural Sustainaganza - This one day forum brought together practitioners working as changemakers and innovators in future city shaping for Aotearoa.

We thank all those who participated and supported this forum which we intend to evolve and grow for 2024.

Our Society

The Sustainability Society is a national network established to foster sustainability across the built environment. The Society provides learning and fosters dialogue on sustainability through workshops, webinars, forums and other projects. It takes a complex systems approach to sustainability, recognising that human and natural systems are increasingly interconnected and interdependent.
