University of Oxford

In 2017, 18 students from Oxford University came to Christchurch to undertake a three-week programme called Re-imagining the City: Christchurch. The students worked in small groups to develop ideas and recommendations related to Christchurch’s future development. They also participated in a series of lectures and discussions led by a range of actors at the centre of Christchurch’s re-development, as well as fieldtrips to various sites of interest in and around the city. The overarching aim was to re-imagine what a 21st century city should and could be.
