Māori-led Change: Te-Whanganui-a-Tara - June 2022

On 28th June 2022 at two/fiftyseven in Te-Whanganui-a-Tara, we were privileged to host the Māori led Change event which included conversations which traversed many of the ways in which rangatahi Māori are leading change across some of our most pressing social issues. From grassroots activism in Aotearoa to climate action on an international scale, this event allowed the speakers and the audience to consider what it means to lead in social change, and some of the ways that everyday people can support meaningful movements as tangata whenua and tangata Tiriti.
