Towards 2060

Welcome to Towards 2060

Originally, this website was created by Manukau City Council, prior to the formation of Auckland Council in November 2010. 

It provided information and support for Design the Future workshops, that informed and stimulated community discussion about the long term future. 

At these workshops, communities could:

  • Examine global to local trends, including significant drivers of change and their potential effects
  • Study opportunities for commercial and social development which incorporate our increasing population
  • Develop individual and collective actions to create living patterns which will be sustainable in the longer term 
Most of the material on the website is still very valuable for communities wishing to plan and prepare for the longer term.  
The team that developed the original site are working to refresh the material and get it back on-line, to make it available for any community in New Zealand (or anywhere else).
