Main Speaker - Sarah Mankelow
Regenerating the red zone - projects, planting and possibilities

There is enormous potential to transform the Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor into the jewel in Christchurch’s crown, creating a place for residents and visitors to explore, play, connect and learn. At 602 hectares, the Ōtākaro Avon River Corridor regeneration area is three-and-a-half times larger than Hagley Park. Hear about the projects that are getting underway this year, including nearly 30,000 natives ready to be put in the ground, and the ways you can get involved. But it's not just the river corridor, our red zone team also looks after Southshore, Brooklands and the Port Hills properties as well – and there’s moves afoot in those spaces too! These are inter-generational projects that may take 30-50 years to reach fruition – but what a city we will have! Can you imagine!
