  • A great start to 2020 with our visit to Ratana and the PM affirming the aspiration to improve the wellbeing of people and make a difference for whānau. While we have achieved much - there is more to do! #2020 #keepgoing #changinglives
  • One of the great things about Ratana is the emphasis on young people/rangatahi. The PM was taken to an expo area where young people were learning about seedlings and the benefits of planting, young people were playing Ki-o-Rahi and we even got challenged to do the ‘Glitter’ TikTok 🙂 I love the way rangatahi gravitate to the PM and she always has time to say hello and invite them to walk around with her. #puttingpeopleattgecentre

  • Spoke at the Infrastructure NZ conference theme was Building Nations.

  • Three of our resilience Ministers Hon James Shaw, Hon Peeni Henare. Myself and deputy chair John Scott of ECan formally recognising the near completion of a 10year flood protection project along the Waimakariri river. This is a braided river and the water engineer Ian Heslop summed it up well “on a good day she is wonderful on a bad day she terrifies me”. Those familiar with the braided river system in the Canterbury plains will understand the changing nature of these rivers. So pleased we got to recognise the foresight and planning that went into making the greater Christchurch region safer from the prospect of large scale flooding! #resilience #startnow #forthefuture
  • Giving a speech to the LGNZ Annual Conference themed “Riding the Wave of Localism”. I was able to share the range of exemplars across the country re: social procurement, integrated planning, biodiversity and community leadership, civil defence and crisis response to demonstrate that Councils are already working differently to activate community wellbeing. We central and local government with community, Iwi and other partners can collaborate to make this approach “the norm” rather than the exception.
