There is a call out for volunteers to help out with the FESTA event for Festival of Transitional Architecture.

We have been contacted by Habitat Christchurch about collaborating if we have any ideas. Please contact Piet email@example.com if you have any ideas.

4.1 Auckland Architecture Week 2012 design charette
As a part of Auckland Architecture Week 2012, we will have a team participating in the one-day design charette on 28th October 2012.
4.2 Designed to Move
AfH, Nike and co have launched a new campaign:
This year, 5.3 million deaths will be attributed to physical inactivity. No one can fix this alone. We must align strategies & combine resources. The science is clear. The debate is over. Urgent priority must be given to dramatically increase the world’s commitment to physical activity. “Designed to Move” offers consensus on the path forward–a single vision: Future generations running, jumping, and kicking to reach their greatest potential. A new normal.
