TSS holds a variety of networking, idea sharing and learning forums which contribute to both:

Supporting our sustainability leaders within the built environment community, and

Engaging with the wider built environment practitioner network to highlight sustainability issues and build the capacities to respond

We work in collaboration with other aligned networks and organisations to create the ‘joined-up’ thinking that is required for the future.


Panel Webinar series – Insights and Opportunities for our built environment from COVID19 

The Sustainability Society always offer webinars as an opportunity for our nationwide network to access learning and new ideas however in this current environment we have fast tracked a series of panel webinars which thus far have generated discussions across an audience of almost 100 people across New Zealand. These have been specifically focused on bringing together different perspectives on how COVID could offer a point of reflection and reset for the future of our built environment.

Upcoming sessions are in development currently and will be posted here

Workshop: Foundations of Sustainability

Will be rescheduled after COVID restrictions have been lifted.

This one-day workshop will introduce some of the foundational aspects of sustainability in the built environment. It will bring in both the global and national drivers for integrating sustainability into practice and provide opportunities for participants to apply this thinking to built environment contexts.

It is targeted to built environment practitioners who are in the initial stages of their career or who have recognised they need to have a broader and more current understanding of sustainability within their professional practice. This workshop is relevant for engineers, planners, urban designers, architects and other built environment practitioners.

This workshop is hosted by TSS in partnership with Engineering NZ.

Member and group discounts available, more info and registration available here.
