Latest Webinar: Webinar 6 – Power and Participation
From Wednesday 14 October
Power. It is often the biggest elephant in the room and we need to be able talk about it. Who’s got it, who hasn’t, and how do we use it to authentically enable more inclusive engagement, participation, and action.
This webinar traversed some of the big issues related to power and participation and shared two different examples of communities actively finding new ways to bring local voices and community solutions forward.
Presented by David Hanna – Inspiring Communities, Lizzie Makalio – Wesley Community Action and Angie Tangaere – The Southern Initiative.
Webinar 5 – Connecting up Government – Building Local – Predator Free NZ
Making shifts to the system – weaving our connections up, down and across.
In this webinar, we unpacked new ways of approaching governance and action planning to tackle ambitious goals. Learn how guiding principles and a values-led approach helps navigate diversity and complexity to help push through the hard stuff.
Using Predator Free New Zealand 2050 as our case study, we shone a light on this leading example of how to decentralise funding, process and power, and how a collective participatory approach across local, regional and national systems is enabling doing things differently.
Take away how working in this way can be applied across other sectors and initiatives – including social, economic and cultural.
Webinar 4 – Shaping the Future
During this rich interactive kōrero, we presented our newly released report, Shaping the Future.
This webinar discussed the report’s insights, implications, and recommendations drawn from the nearly 70 individuals and organisations we spoke with in May and June. The report includes the local, regional, and national systems changes needed to support and strengthen community resilience in Aotearoa.
We offer this report as one of the many feathers needed for all places and people in Aotearoa to fly.
This webinar series is facilitated by Inspiring Communities, Denise Bijoux
