We would love to hear your ideas. We’re looking for local insights to feed into an ongoing national conversation about how we can tackle poverty at local and national levels.

This one-day workshop is part of a series sparked by the national TacklingPovertyNZ workshop held in December 2015, an initiative of the McGuinness Institute in collaboration with the New Zealand Treasury.

The workshop will be opened by Rotorua District Mayor Hon Steve Chadwick, New Zealand Treasury’s Chief Economist.

Dr Girol Karacaoglu, Data Futures Partnership Working Group Chair Dame Diane Robertson and other speakers will set the scene in the morning. In the afternoon, we’ll investigate and workshop the issues, challenges and opportunities facing our district. The goal is to come up with local solutions, which will be presented to the wider community later in the afternoon.

Special thanks to Rotorua Lakes Council.

9:00 am - 4:15 pm - (Registration begins at 8:30 am).
