An open lecture from Assoc Prof Bronwyn Hayward, POLS 216 - Urban Politics and Policy in Practice, presented by the Department of Political Science, University of Canterbury.

By the middle of this century, 7 in 10 people will live in a city. Cities are already large global actors, destinations, and trade centres in their own right. It is no coincidence that cities gave birth to our first ideas of democracy and in this public lecture, Assc Prof Bronwyn Hayward discusses why cities and their citizens sites will define the politics of this, the century of the city.

You are welcome to join this lecture with UC class Politics 216, New Zealand city politics and local government

Bronwyn Hayward is Head of Department of Political Science at UC, her New Zealand and international research focuses on democracy in times of change, with a particular emphasis on youth, urbanization and environmental change.

This event is part of the public programme that runs in conjunction with People Building Better Cities exhibition. Running from 28 July to 29 August at the Te Pūtahi Pop-Up Space in the Unimed Building at 163 Gloucester Street, the Christchurch edition of People Building Better Cities promotes participation and inclusive urbanization through its public programme, which includes discussions, lectures, interaction, professional development training and school workshops.
