River of Flowers: 5 years on

The River of Flowers has grown from small beginnings to become a key way that communities come together to commemorate the 2011 earthquake.

On this fifth anniversary, Cantabrians once again have the opportunity to share their experiences and hopes for the future as part of the River of Flowers commemoration.

On Monday 22nd February 2016, River of Flower sites will be set up along the Avon and Heathcote rivers, at the estuary, and on the River Liffey.

Find out more about the 2016 River of Flowers, including how to find a site near you.

Welcome to Healthy Christchurch

Healthy Christchurch is a CDHB-led intersectoral collaborative partnership based on the WHO Healthy Cities model.

The key idea is that all sectors and groups have a role to play in creating a healthy city, whether their specific focus is recreation, employment, youth, environmental enhancement, transport, housing or any other aspect of city life.

This intersectoral initiative aims at foster collaboration between organisations who have signed The Healthy Christchurch Charter.

Read the Healthy Christchurch Charter.

There are currently over 200 Charter Signatories, ranging from government agencies, businesses, voluntary sector groups, networks and residents associations. The specialist focus of the signatories ranges from children's welfare to sport, from the arts to literacy.
