School of Environment research findings: How lockdown affected Waiheke

04/11/2020 @ 17:30 - 19:00

Free

A survey of Waiheke residents undertaken by Project Forever Waiheke and the University of Auckland School of Environment has found that COVID19 has affected locals’ incomes, with just over half reporting some decrease, although for many that was temporary.

However many also spoke of a feeling that they had rediscovered many of the special treasures of Waiheke, in particular a return to walking around the island safely due to reduced traffic, much more noticeable bird life, and a strong resurgence of community spirit on the island, with people helping one another during the lockdowns and getting to know their neighbours better.

School of Environment students involved in the research will be presenting a summary of the survey findings on Wed 4 November, at a seminar open to all and jointly hosted by Project Forever Waiheke and the University. It will be held at the Sustainability Centre in Mako St, starting at 5.30 (no charge).
