Public Talk: Why Green the Red Zone? - Ashley Campbell and Denise Ford

"Why green the red zone?" - Ashley from Greening the Red Zone will explore the many benefits of returning the red zone to nature, and outline Greening the Red Zone's proposal.

"An Avon-Ōtākaro Forest Park in the making" - Denise from the Avon-Otakaro Forest Park group will share her group's vision of a forest/wetland park in the Avon Red zone, what they are doing on the ground, and how a forest park could be achieved.

What happens next in the Red Zone is extremely important both because this presents a wonderful opportunity to return some of Christchurch's lost ecosystems and because the right choices now could provide some positive healing for our citizens, especially in the east. It is important that we brave the winter weather and turn up to listen to and support these speakers who are working so hard for Christchurch's future.

Supper and a chat afterwards. All welcome.
