Does the devastating 2011 Earthquake shape the view of Christchurch City?

Vaughn Davis is joined by Christchurch Mayor Lianne Dalziel, as they talk about a smarter, more innovative Christchurch.

Vaughn asks, is Christchurch becoming a technology hothouse?

Mayor Lianne Dalziel explains it's been 125 years since woman got the right to vote in New Zealand, and this originally started in Christchurch.

To what extent did the Christchurch Earthquake create an even greater opportunity, in terms of technology?

It's given us a chance to think of what could we do differently.

Ms Dalziel says they intend to build things safer and smarter and enable buildings to be completely usable.

She also speaks about Driverless vehicles becoming apparent in the near future.
