some more information, I heard of a number of Wellington programs encouraging people from the refugee and migrant community to cycle.

They sound like very interesting projects that could help people gain independence, and support mental well-being and social connection.

Event Date: 01/01/1970 12:00

Warm Pacific greetings everyone

 

For those of us privileged to support Polyfest in the Red Zone March 18th, would have seen the potential and opportunity for those barren lands. Regenerate Christchurch is leading the Avon River Corridor Regeneration Plan.

 

They are starting the next stage of engagements and giving CPN the opportunity to help shape the overarching vision and objectives for the Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor(OARC).

  

CPN will partner with Regenerate Christchurch to hold a workshop asking:

  •     what Pacific community needs you see as critical to informing the draft Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor Regeneration Plan?
  •     what ideas CPN have for the draft Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor Regeneration Plan that would help address these needs?
  •     how these ideas contribute to the vision for the Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor.

 

Please find attached the official Regenerate invitation and OARC plan. If I could get you to RSVP your attendance by Thursday 6th April for catering purposes faamolemole.

 

Look forward to seeing you there, if not sooner.

 

Have a blessed Tuesday

Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor Workshop
28/03/2017
Event Date: 01/01/1970 12:00

You are invited to attend a workshop with Christchurch City Council and Regenerate Christchurch.

 

The purpose of the workshop is to help develop an overarching vision and objectives for the Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor.

 

Regeneration is about people, place and prosperity. For Christchurch, it’s about creating a vibrant city that has opportunities for people to grow, connect and thrive.

 

Regenerate Christchurch is now in the process of developing a regeneration plan for the Ōtākaro Avon River corridor – the former red zone land from Barbadoes Street to Bexley.

 

To create a meaningful vision, collectively we need to answer the question, ‘what is the greatest contribution this land could make to the future of Christchurch and New Zealand?’

 

What does Christchurch need, now and in the future, and how could the Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor meet those needs.

 

We hope to see you there.

 

When:              Tuesday 4 April 2017, 6 – 8pm                      

 

Where:                        Aranui Wainoni Community Centre, 31 Hampshire Street, Aranui

 

RSVP:               Please respond to this email if you are interested in attending

 

You may have received this invitation from several groups that are working with Regenerate Christchurch.  The content will be the same at each workshop so please select the workshop that suits you best.

Sustainability Presentation by Prof David Griggs in Christchurch
08/03/2017
Event Date: 01/01/1970 12:00

Good afternoon, 

 
The reason I'm getting in touch is I just wanted to make sure that you were aware of a presentation that is been given in Christchurch next week on Thursday 16th March at the Ilex Cafe & Events (Christchurch Botanic Gardens) which I think that you and your members would be really interested in.

I've attached a PDF poster about the event, but here's just a quick synopsis for you:
  • David Griggs, Professor at the Monash Sustainable Development Institute in Melbourne is coming to NZ to speak on the subject "The relevance of the UN Sustainable Development Goals to business in New Zealand".  (Professor Griggs will be making his presentations in Wellington, Dunedin, Christchurch and Cromwell).
  • The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) came into effect on 1 January 2016 with the view to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure prosperity for all. There are 17 goals and 169 associated targets that the UN aims to achieve over the next 15 years.
  • During the presentation, Prof Griggs will outline the vital role that local businesses have to play in achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals through responsible business operations, new business models, investment, innovation, technology and collaboration. His presentation will provide information on the SDGs, how countries are beginning to implement them and how the SDGs can be both good for the world and good for business!
  • Business owners and operators are invited to these presentations to come and find out how their business is likely to be affected and how they can help to implement these Sustainable Development Goals.  It is sure to be extremely beneficial and useful for those that attend.
We would love for any and all to attend this event.  Below is where you can purchase tickets to the event (we are just having to make a small charge for tickets in order to help cover some of the costs of bringing Prof Griggs to NZ and the costs for hiring the venues):

https://sustainability-christchurch.eventbrite.co.nz 


We'd also be happy for you to pass on this invitation to anyone who you think would be interested in attending - it's sure to be a really informative morning with some great pointers as to how to run a more sustainable business!
 
Thanks in advance and do please let me know if you have any queries.

Kind regards,

Nicky
