The face of a modern environmental centre is changing. Christchurch has an opportunity to bring environmental and conservation groups together, to create a collaborative and innovative world- class co-working space.  

How could a concentration of organisations in an enviro-hub change the face of environmental and conservation practices? What will their impact be when pooling resources, and amplifiying their voice?

The Christchurch Enviro-hub envisions environmental wellbeing radiating out from such a hub.



An environmental co-working space, designed with significant environmental and social returns in mind.
