In Memory of our
Co-Founder Evan Smith

Evan Smith was the co-founder and original co-chair of the Avon-Ōtākaro Network. Evan worked tirelessly to ensure the Avon Vision was realised right up until his death in August 2020. He lived to see the global settlement signed off and the work to set up a co-governance board almost completed. Evan’s vision and tenacity have left a gift to Christchurch and our awa for generations to come.
