Eastern Rising is a rag tag group of East Christchurch champions shouting about good things in the area for two years. Even winning a NZ On Air award! At the end people wanted to hear about Climate Change and how do we take action. So under the Eastern Rising Banner we are pulling together a special show called:
"A Climate for Change" raising awareness of climate breakdown impact and more,
We will tell the local stories of those who are creating solutions we can all get behind, and inspire people to take simple actions in our own backyards across East Canterbury.. If you are apart of the story get in contact with us.. For the rest of us taking small steps follow Eastern Rising on facebook.

What's coming up?
We're going through an exciting next phase from a loose collective to a fully fledged legal social enterprise for good!
First steps is becoming a legal entity with a social impact purpose and constitution. This allows us to go for some grant funding and shout out our commitment for good.
We have a lot of expertise for social impact and to do our bit for the Climate Emergency. Before we jump the gun we want to put our umbrella enterprise in order, get some funds, then we get two of our very exciting impact initiatives off the ground!
Announcements will be mid 2020

Flourish Inc sits in the emergent and innovative space to try new ways of doing.
