Come along this Sunday to get discussions started regarding Auckland's Unitary Plan. Bring your ideas on how AfH-AKL can help steer the Council toward a more resilient, beautiful and equitable Auckland.
The design community is in the unique position to step up public discussion and remove the fear factor by showing communities how bright Auckland's future can be.
We strongly recommend that you have a look at the Plan before Sunday so that we can start putting ideas together as soon as possible.
Hope you all had a good ANZAC Day. Lest we forget.
May is upon us, it’ll be halfway through the year in no time! But don’t freak out just yet, AFH AKL have quite a few great opportunities arising – will be discussed in the May monthly meeting. Opportunities will also be posted up on the Chapter Network so make sure you are subscribed to the Auckland Chapter http://auckland.architectureforhumanity.org/

Our Christchurch satellite chapter is still busily engaged and we are looking forward to seeing the fruits of their efforts in the upcoming months.
A heads up from our member Steph:
Kia ora humanitarians,
As we all know, Auckland is on the precipice of huge change. As New Zealand's largest port and city, the direction of that change will not only impact Aucklanders, but all New Zealanders.
Round the Bays Auckland is on the 10th of March and a bunch of AFH people will be doing it together at a casual pace. Always a great day out! So while we walk/jog we can discuss the hopes and joys of humanitarian architecture.
Race starts at 9:30am on Quay Street, so let's meet at 9am at Takutai Square. On the grass area, see map http://goo.gl/maps/lX65R
