Public Tour of Christie Walk

Eco village tours now open for booking

The city can save the planet.

– Dr Paul Downton – architect and co-founder of Christie Walk eco village

According to UN Habitat, cities consume 78 per cent of the world’s energy and produce more than 60 per cent of greenhouse gas emissions. And those emissions are making the planet hot and angry, leading to wild weather and a dangerous climate

But because we are constantly rebuilding cities anyway, “the city can save the planet”, one neighbourhood at a time, if we build Ecocities.

Christie Walk was built as a living demonstration of what is meant by an ecocity development. If you come and visit, you’ll find some inspiration for making urban living more sustainable and pleasant.

So we’re inviting you to join us on a Public Tour of Christie Walk. It’s a great opportunity to chat with our trained tour leaders. “What’s it like to live in a community instead of an individual home?” “Is living green mainly a burden or mainly a joy?” “How do you ensure everybody helps maintain and improve Christie Walk?”

    Hello, a colleague shared the website which shows the tours that are on offer at Christies Walk. It sounds very interesting. My year 10 students are currently looking at sustainable design and I thought this might be a great chance for them to see something in action. I was wondering if there was opportunity for a school tour on Monday April 3? I tried the email address but it says that it is no longer available.
    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
