EDUCATION LEADERS FORUM


The Education Leaders Forum (ELF) is an annual forum for education leaders and aspiring leaders from across the learning spectrum in New Zealand.

SEISMICS AND THE CITY

Seismics and the City is an annual series of forums involving public, private and community sector organisations engaged in the re-building and revitalisation of Greater Christchurch in the wake of the earthquakes of 2010-11.  The first forum was held in March 2012, one year and one month after the devastating February 2011 earthquake.
