Multicultural Strategy Consultation Meeting

Consultation Meeting for Christchurch City Council’s Multicultural Strategy

When: Wednesday 20 July 2016, 12noon -1pm
Where: Okeover 106 (Okeover Room)

Facilitated by Ekant Veer and Representatives from the Christchurch City Council

This consultation meeting is an opportunity for staff and students at the University of Canterbury to express their views on the City Council’s proposed Multicultural strategy.

The strategy has been developed to recognise the growing diversity in Christchurch and how the city council should respond to make our city a welcoming place for all people.

We encourage participants to attend the meeting and voice their views on the proposed strategy and offer suggestions for improvement.

RSVP to Ekant Veer by email: ekant.veer@canterbury.ac.nz

You may also provide feedback through the Your Voice website if you are unable to attend the meeting on campus.


Help the SVA in Woolston – 14 May

Interested in an action-packed day of volunteering?

Join the Student Volunteer Army in Woolston on the 14th of May for a morning of helping out residents in need, saving the endangered black-billed gull, walking along the Heathcote as we give the riverbank a spruce-up and channelling your inner artist with our painting projects.

It’s set to be a great day, with a free community BBQ at Bamford School for everyone involved.

A briefing will be held at Bamford School at 9am before volunteers are split into groups.
