On the Greening the Rubble project's website you will see how this project is making a difference in Christchurch despite the continuing earthquakes and aftershocks. Go to: http://www.greeningtherubble.org.nz
The Greening the Rubble project, will be run under the umbrella of Living Streets Aotearoa with grant support from Christchurch City Council. It forms part of a wider initiative to find temporary uses for empty sites across Christchurch, following the damage caused by the Canterbury earthquake on 4 September 2010; collectively known as Make-SHIFT.
Living Streets Aotearoa is the New Zealand organisation for people on foot, promoting walking-friendly communities. We are a nationwide organisation with local branches and affiliates throughout New Zealand.
We want more people walking and enjoying public spaces be they young or old, fast or slow, whether walking, sitting, commuting, shopping, between appointments, or out on the streets for exercise, for leisure or for pleasure.
