Judy Lawley at Day 3

Judy Lawley, Waitakere Ecocity, New Zealand

Fifteen years ago Waitakere became the first New Zealand city to adopt the Ecocity name.  Making that vision a reality has been an all-encompassing task of sensible targets and exciting technology across all areas of city development.  Real sustainability there, however, depends on people’s involvement.  Judy was an early pioneer of the Waitakere Way – working in partnership. She is a member of the governing council of Waitakere’s tertiary institute, Unitec, is a three-term City Council Member. Prior to becoming a city councillor 7 years ago Judy managed a NZ education project to develop values education in schools.
