Public forums will be held in Christchurch at Tūranga central library, as well as a number of other locations around New Zealand that are the focus of the Inquiry. These will include Selwyn district, Waimakariri district, Hurunui district, Marlborough and Kaikōura districts, and the areas of Edgecumbe and Eketāhuna.

These forums are a chance to drop in and talk to the Inquiry face to face, see what others are saying and share your views, and/or take part in group discussions relating to experiences with EQC. There is a drop-in available at each of the forums, and in some cases a group discussion with Dame Silvia Cartwright.
