All Right? Campaign update: September 2016
Kia ora Canterbury!
We don't know about you but the warmer weather, daffodils, blossom and lighter evenings has put a new spring in our step.
So much so, we think it's a great time to introduce you to our new Mind Your Head campaign...
Disconnect to reconnect!
We are about to stage New Zealand's first city-wide Digital Detox. We are challenging Cantabrians to sign up to our Digital Detox and prepare to down their screens between 10am and 2pm on Sunday 2nd October 2016.
Small breaks away from technology can have big benefits. It allows us to slow down and focus on the things that matter most... reading, walking, getting outdoors or spending time with the whānau!
To make it easy, we're hosting the All Right? Amble in the Botanic Gardens that day where you'll be able to check in your phone (security will be onsite!) and enjoy a spot of screen-free time in one of the city's most beautiful places - with a few surprises along the way.
Sign up to take part in Digital Detox.
Celebrating how far we have come
It is hard to believe that it has now been 6 years since the 4th September 2010 earthquake.
It is easy to forget how far many things have come, with the city still awash with temporary fencing and road cones and most of us painfully aware that many are still battling with broken homes and other issues.
That's why it's important to take a moment every now and then and think about how much progress we have made...
Slowing down, and even procrastinating, can boost your creativity.

One in four Norwegians did tune in to watch a continuous five-day TV programme showing the minute-by-minute progress of a boat travelling from Bergen to Kirkenes.
Hei konā rā
We'll be in touch a later in September with more on Mind Your Head and Canterbury's Digital Detox. Until then, go forth and be kind!
