The Amazing Place youth engagement strategy

In 2013 the Christchurch Central Development Unit developed a youth engagement strategy to reconnect the children of Canterbury with Christchurch’s central city.
A series of competitions was developed to provide young people with an opportunity to be involved in the design and reimaging of the city. The competitions were a huge success, with over 7000 local young people taking part and contributing ideas for aspects of their future city. This case study chronicles the design and roll  out of the competition and supporting engagement activities.
