In this discussion paper, The Policy Observatory’s Dr David Hall explores the ways that New Zealanders think about the landscape, and how these ideas influence actual decisions about land use. To put New Zealand on the path of long-term prosperity, he endorses the Interwoven World, Te Ao i Whiria, a vision of the landscape that combines and intermingles diverse land use systems. With issues like water quality, climate change and the One Billion Trees Programme high on the public agenda, this discussion paper invites a conversation about the kinds of landscapes we want to live with, and the landscapes we ought to avoid.
