More than almost anything else, our lives are shaped by the built environment we live in. Transport, urban form and urban development mould who we are, and they shape the impact each of us has on the world.
We need to understand how we're being shaped, and what that means. And because the built environment can shape us for better and for worse, it's vital that we use this knowledge to shape our built environment ourselves.
When we regularly consume quality information on transport and urban form, ordinary people become forces for good. Ordinary people start shaping our streets, neighbourhoods and cities to be better for all - which in turn helps us all to be our best selves.
Your contribution will help Talk Wellington's accessible, insightful perspectives become part of the regular information diet for people of the Wellington region. It'll help us pay our running costs and content contributors, and do outreach - see our site.
Essentially, Talk Wellington are fundraising to secure our existence in 2019. Read more about this target, and what the year holds if we make it, here.
How can you help?
If, by early 2019, we haven't secured sufficient funding for the year's minimum viable operation, we will wrap up Talk Wellington and halt all Presspatron payments.
We believe in the people of the Wellington region, and we believe in you! Once you've donated, please share this so other like-minded people can join you in supporting our existence next year.
Thank you for helping Wellington people make Wellington better!
