City of Opportunity

Our current project explores how Christchurch, Ōtautahi, can become a City of Opportunity. This involves connecting learning opportunities across the city – businesses, schools, tertiaries, communities – coming together to make a positive difference to our city. It’s connecting the dots of what is already happening, it’s grass roots initiatives, it’s about equity. More soon…
