The Institute for Governance and Policy Studies, in collaboration with The Treasury, Superu, Statistics New Zealand and the Greater Wellington Regional Council, is hosting 'A more inclusive New Zealand' Forum on Monday 27 July 2015 from 9am to 5.30pm at Te Papa.
Attendance for the event is free of charge and open to all, with numbers limited to 200.
The Forum will bring together government, non-government and community organisations to discuss and develop a shared understanding of the key issues that will allow New Zealanders to participate in the economy and society.
Participants will hear from national and international experts on key issues around inequality such as Maori wellbeing, hardship, regional wellbeing, children, communities, housing and health. In facilitated groups, they will discuss the drivers, fixers and barriers for these issues. The programme will culminate with a panel discussion reflecting on the main themes coming through the conversations from throughout the day.
