“Live the Dream was challenging, stretching and empowering. We learned how to use research to find the root cause of the issue we wanted to tackle, create business plans, prototype and ideate, pitch, market, plan and manage finances, and so much more.”
The Future Leaders programme supports young people in rural and provincial communities to connect, explore big issues affecting their future, build their entrepreneurial and leadership capability, and make a difference in their backyard.
Our involvement ranged from supporting the scholarships process, to running various events and workshops for young people throughout the forum. Every night we held events for young social entrepreneurs to connect, share stories and knowledge.
On 4–6th August, more than 1,300 people converged on Auckland for our biggest ever Festival for the Future. We had young people from every region nationwide in the room, as well as a growing number of international delegates from the Asia-Pacific Region. The buzz was absolutely incredible!!
