Seismics and the City 2015

Seismics and the City 2015 was held on 27 March 2015 at the Rydges Latimer Conference Centre, Christchurch. The 2015 theme was Creating a Greater Christchurch - Sketching the Bigger Picture.

The 2015 forum was the fourth in an annual series involving representatives of public, private and community sector organisations and interested individuals engaged in the re-building of Greater Christchurch in the wake of the earthquakes of 2010-11.

Christchurch is at a tipping point as it moves into the 5th year of a largely top-down disaster response and recovery process. The countdown has started for the transition from centralised control to much more distributed local ownership of issues and solutions.

The forum connected the dots on a broad canvas and filled in the bigger picture of recovery and renewal as rebuild momentum gathers pace. It also provided opportunities for feedback and input by those who wish their voice to be heard in shaping a renewed Christchurch.
