• 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.
  • Maruata - elected Maori representatives at their annual Hui Waiwhetu Marae 2019.
  • At Rehua Marae, Christchurch with the PM launching Oranga Marae to enable planning, refurbishment, feasibility studies and disaster preparedness planning. We have increased funding availability of $12m over four years from Wellbeing Budget 2019. It’s pleasing to see Marae, hapū and Iwi engaging in CDEM responses. Lots of learning from Rena, Christchurch and Kaukoura quakes, Matata debris and flood disaster, and Fires in Whakatū. engaging Maori in first response can improve community safety and resilience as well as strengthening social cohesion.
