Little Engines that Can
In this webinar, we look at ways that can help communities to come together over shared visions and agendas.
Little Engines that Can – Local communities powering up Aotearoa.
With a focus on the Eastern Bay of Plenty’s experiences, this webinar explored some key elements and frameworks for getting traction across neighbouring communities to create shared visions and agendas, build community and social capital, and attract government co-investment into Iwi, Māori, and community-led projects.
This webinar covered:
Listen to Inspiring Communities’ Barbara MacLennan – David Cunliffe, Arihia Tuoro (Te Whakatōhea) – an experienced project manager and governor of Māori entities – and Aileen Lawrie, Chief Executive of Ōpōtiki District Council. These local leaders are among those who have helped drive local and regional progress through determined and disciplined cross-sector teamwork, and attention to shaping both economic and social development.
Included in this webinar was the story of Kawerau. You can watch this short ‘Our Inspiring Story’ video in the link provided below.
