A talk and slideshow by world renowned architect and sustainable living expert Brenda Vale

Living in NZ as we do would take at least two planet Earths in terms of the resources we use. This talk shows what we need to do to reduce our personal environmental impact much closer to one planet living -and it's not as hard as it might first seem!
Brenda and her husband Robert are the authors of the seminal 1975 book, 'The Autonomous House'. The book has been translated into five languages and is widely recognized as an essential text in the field of green building. The Vales both currently hold Professorships at Victoria University of Wellington.
Brenda is a fascinating and delightfully entertaining speaker well worth a listen. Her talk includes many slides of her work and real living examples of inspiring 'autonomous' houses.
