Making New Zealand the best place in the world to be a child

To register for this seminar, please visit here

New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinta Ardern has set ambitious, decade-long goals to reduce child poverty and significantly improve child wellbeing. These will be reported every year and supported by a comprehensive strategy for child wellbeing.

There has been a long history of state focus on children. A central initiative has been recently created through Oranga Tamariki—Ministry for Children.

The goal is challenging. It demands an honest assessment where things have not worked, and a readiness to consider a fresh approach.

It’s an approach necessarily informed by multiple disciplines and drawing upon insights from children at risk, families, caseworkers, all the way up to central policymakers. Underpinned by data and evidence, this approach needs to be supported by modern, best-of-breed systems, practices and sound digital thinking.

Join us as we consider the Prime Minister’s challenge and contribute your insights on how to make New Zealand the best place in the world to be a kid.

Please note, the seminar is for public sector executives only and RSVP is essential.

Seats are limited so make sure to register here.
