1:15 Doing Medium Density Well

The arguments about Auckland's Unitary Plan are almost over. Auckland has decided to go with intensification and more medium density terrace housing and apartments. So it's critical that we do it well. The University of Auckland's twice-annual talk series, Fast Forward, aims to foster debate, discussion and development within the disciplines of architecture, urban planning and urban design. And the upcoming series, asks how can we do medium density well? Bill McKay is a senior lecturer at the School of Architecture and Planning, University of Auckland.

Josh is speaking at The New Zealand Educators' Neuroscience Conference in May. He has a bachelor's degree in Philosophy and American Studies from Miami University and a master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Nevada-Las Vegas.

Sea trekking combines swimming with snorkelling and freediving...with a little bit of camping thrown in for good measure!

The key piece of equipment is an inflatable, waterproof kit bag that you can use as a float, and to transport your stuff around with you too.

Simon Morton went to a local beach to meet sea trekking fan Julian Muehlmeier
