Waha: Using our Voice to Advocate for Positive Change: Sharing the WWP Story | te tiri i te korero WWP

Sharing the WWP Story | te tiri i te korero WWP

We were thrilled and honoured to be invited by South Waikato District Council to be part of their roadshow to Wellington at the end of August. The roadshow culminated in an event in the Grand Hall at Parliament Buildings in Wellington. 

We were kindly hosted by local MPs Louise Upston and Adian Ruawhe, as well as co-hosts for the event South Waikato Mayor Jenny Shattock and Raukawa Chair Kataraina Hodge. The event featured and celebrated businesses and social wellbeing organisations in South Waikato. As well we Waikato-wide organisations including Te Waka and Momentum Waikato. I attended this event along with one of our rangatahi innovators Charlotte Mitchell, who co-presenter our Rangatahi Opportunity project to attendees at the event.

While in Wellington we also met with officials from the department of Prime Minister and Cabinet (Child and Youth Wellbeing), The Productivity Commission and The Treasury to share our journey to date and discuss alignment opportunities, especially in relation to our Rangatahi Opportunity mahi
