Event description
Join us to hear an overview of the strategic framework and share how we influence the urban system of Greater Christchurch.

About this event

Due to the uncertainty of changing COVID levels - we've rescheduled this event from its original date of 14th September to 30th September. We're keeping our fingers crossed we can deliver this event at level 1, however, should we remain in level 2, we will still go ahead and adapt the delivery of this event to adhere to all COVID rules and regulations. Should we moved to level 3 or higher, we will look to postpone and reschedule again for a later date.

The Greater Christchurch 2050 was established to deliver a clear agreed aspiration and positioning of Greater Christchurch, drive and focus of partnership investment and commitment to deliver shared outcomes, partnership and investment agreement between local and central government. This will be done through the development of a new strategic framework and plan for Greater Christchurch, the establishment of an urban growth partnership with central government and working in partnership with mana whenua and iwi.

Join us to hear from Anna Elphick from ChristchurchNZ as she provides an overview of the strategic framework and share how we influence the urban system of Greater Christchurch.

The B.linc VIBE event series is an opportunity to hear from one of the wider Lincoln precinct companies about their business and to touch base, reconnect and build connections across the precinct.

Organiser of The Purpose of Greater Christchurch 2050

At B.linc, we are passionate about innovation, and collaboration within New Zealand Aotearoa’s food and fibre sector.

Our role is to be a neutral connector, helping facilitate and grow an exponential innovation ecosystem in agriculture, food and technology. By connecting across industry, science, and agriculture we develop innovation for the future. We work with leading organisations, start-ups, researchers, growers and universities, to address the topical challenges facing the food and fibre sector.

We believe that collaborating is the start of creating and doing great things. We encourage you to get involved, to join forces to deliver collective impact.

Through our three pillars; creating events, offering a co-working space and facilitating projects we provide the platform to be share innovative insights, network, and to accelerate sustainable solutions for our future.
