Calling all young (and young-at-heart) activists and changemakers

Aug 7 · 2 min read

Last year, ActionStation surveyed over 1,000 young people for their perspectives on wellbeing and created a powerful report Ngā Kōrero Hauora o Ngā Taiohi.

The research found that young people have an incredible vision for the future of Aotearoa. One that puts people and planet first, ensures everyone has access to great mental health, and young people are represented in positions of power.

Since we launched the report, the research has been presented to over 1,000 youth workers, policy makers, MPs and councils.

With the local election coming up in October, and young people stepping up all around the country to run for council, we now have a great opportunity for young people to continue to create positive impact.
