We meet regularly on the first Tueday of the month at 4.15-6.00 pm to discuss our business and projects.
Contact us (see below) if you are interested in attending or assisting in some way with any of our business or projects.
What's coming up in November and beyond?
- On November 2nd, the 14th Canterbury Active Transport Forum (see below) will be held at the new CCC building in Hereford Street. Julie Anne Genter (an inspirational speaker from the 2010 Living Streets Walking conference) will be presenting at this forum at 1.00 pm. For those unable to come to the whole event (which runs until 3.30 pm), we think it would be well worth while just coming for Julie Anne’s presentation.The agenda for the full meeting is not yet out, but contact Chrys (see contacts below) if you are interested in coming along and want to know more.
- In December we are looking at running a CBD walk around the op shops. It is likely to be on a Saturday with a stop for lunch along the way at a cafe. Watch this space for any updates
If you have an interest in Akaroa then you might like to look at the Draft Akaroa Places and Spaces Plan. Submissions on this are now due on the 22nd October 2010.
Canterbury Active Transport (CAT) Forum
The CAT Forum is a multi-party forum for those within the region who have an interest in the development and promotion of active transport.
The CAT Forum meets on a quarterly basis. Topics for discussion / presentation come from the forum members, with Environment Canterbury responsible for hosting and facilitating the forum meetings.
Anyone interested is welcome to attend. Check out the web page for further information, meeting dates, meeting minutes and presentations.
There are many walking groups around Christchurch and they are a good way to explore the many wonderful places the City has to offer. Join a free walking group and get fit while meeting new people at the same time. Find out more here
Google has recently introduced walking directions on their map site. To access the walking directions, go to 'Get Directions,' put in your start and finish points, and select 'Walking.' Please note that this feature is still being developed and may be missing pedestrian pathways. If you have any comments about this, let us know via the contacts below.
Jan Gehl Public Space Public Life Study
In 2009, Danish urban designer Jan Gehl undertook a Public Space Public Life Study of Central Christchurch. This has been released early in 2010 and has some great stuff in it around walking and making Christchurch less of a car focused city. Check out the report here
