Sketching the Bigger Picture
Creating a Greater Christchurch
Envisioning. Engaging. Energising
The 2015 forum will be the fourth Seismics and the City forum in an annual series involving representatives of public, private and community sector organisations in Canterbury and further afield engaged in the re-building of Greater Christchurch in the wake of the earthquakes of 2010-11.
It will fill in the bigger picture of recovery and connect the dots on a broad canvas as rebuild momentum gathers pace and opportunities multiply to shape the emerging new city.

| The eighth annual Education Leaders Forum
Enhancing Learning Culture was held at Rydges
Latimer, Christchurch on 21 and 22 August.
Learning culture is the invisible force that shapes professional behaviour and student achievement. Nothing is more important or potent than culture. ELF 14 focused on how to tap into what is really going on in the culture of a learning community in order to enhance positive learning practices.
The Government's evolving Investing in Educational Success (IES) initiative has implications and lessons not just for the compulsory schooling sector at which it is aimed but for any education organisation from early childhood to tertiary which wants to lift learner achievement, professional job satisfaction and the status of the teaching profession.
ELF14 provided a neutral forum and a wider frame to explore and shape some of the key IES proposals. It also provide a forum for education leaders to share professional insights into how they have gone about enhancing the learning culture of their education community by strengthening professional engagement, learning development and knowledge sharing.
