Exploring a Future for Christchurch Together – Massive Online Gathering Friday June 24th
Magnetic South will now run from 9am New Zealand time, Friday 24 June to midday Saturday 25 June.
It is more important than ever to think about the future of Christchurch. We really hope you will join us. We’ve pushed the game out a week so people can reflect about the future and not just about the recent aftershocks.
Keep a look out for more blog posts as we get ready to play on Friday 24 June.

As we go about redeveloping our city, some of the decisions we make will shape our city well beyond today. But how do we know what will be needed in twenty or thirty years from now?
In 1981, hardly anyone would have guessed that the internet would be central to how we do business and keep in touch; apartment living was something that we associated with Manhattan and Chicago, not Merivale and central Christchurch; and we didn’t think twice about the price of petrol.
With so much change and uncertainty, how we can make sure what we put in place now continues to make Christchurch attractive – a magnet – for the future.
