Lastly, next Wednesday 6 September we are launching our crowd-sourced vision for the future of our country, Te Ira Tāngata: People’s Agenda for Aotearoa.

For the past eight weeks, members of the ActionStation community have been contributing to our people-powered vision at more than 100 Kai & Kōrero lunches and dinners nationwide. We’ve also gathered insights from the more than 45,000 responses we’ve received from members of this community in surveys over the past three years. And we’ve been consulting with experts, creatives and tangata whenua to pull it together into a cohesive plan for the future of Aotearoa.
