WakaNZ: Navigating with foresight 2017 workshop

Kia ora and welcome

From 4.00 pm Sunday, 19 November 2017 to Wednesday, 22 November 2017 the Institute, in collaboration with the New Zealand Treasury, hosted a four-day workshop. The aim of the workshop was to explore what a preferred future might look like in a post-Treaty settlement
New Zealand.

The workshop hosted 34 participants aged 18–25 who identify with specific iwi or hapū, or as urban Māori. Six of the participants took up the role of workshop interns to assist in the smooth running of the workshop. Carwyn Jones (Ngāti Kahungunu) and Wendy McGuinness were the workshop co-facilitators.

Finale and outputs
The workshop will produce a booklet and a finale presentation. The finale was held at Government House on the evening of Wednesday 22 November. There was also a public presentation held at Te Papa on Thursday 23 November from 12.30–1.30 pm. See flyer here.
