An evolving city: Alison Adams

Ōtautahi Christchurch is a city on the cusp of an amazing period in its history.

Alison Adams, CEO of Christchurch NZ.

With the development of new infrastructure, the embracing of our bi-cultural heritage and the vibrant atmosphere in our new central social district, it’s certainly an exciting time to be here. As the city continues to evolve, it’s important that the story of the city evolves with it.

ChristchurchNZ recently announced a refreshed city identity, or story, for Christchurch. Drawing on input from thousands of residents, visitors, and city stakeholders, and guided by global expertise and local knowledge, Christchurch’s story is one of a city that believes in balance.

We are a city where making time and space for play is valued – where play is reflected in all of our activities, our inspiring history, our connection to the natural environment, our drive to innovate, our love of sport and our value of community.

In a complicated, non-stop world, play allows people of all ages to find balance in their lives.

This balance sets us apart from many cities, because we have the spaces and accessibility that allow people to build communities and connections.

I love that we are celebrating the garden city heritage, while reflecting the broader story of who we are today, the best of both the urban and rural worlds. Balance.
I encourage you to take some time to ask yourself, how does our wonderful city offer you balance in your life?
