Welcome to the Strengthening Communities Hui!

The Strengthening Communities Hui is where a large number of community and social enterprises get together to laugh, learn and get reenergised. These groups come from throughout Aotearoa New Zealand and are working on actions to achieve zero waste, renewable energy, healthy homes, ecosystem restoration, generation of local jobs and many other projects that contribute to thriving local communities.

Our members sit in the interface where national and systemic issues are played out locally. This years hui theme ‘Showing Community Leadership’ will explore how our members can and are positioning themselves as leaders within their communities and some of the key trends that will define our sector in the future.

We’ll be together for two days, which will include keynotes, case studies, workshops, dialogue, networking and tours.

The hui is also an opportunity for our important partners to come and listen, discuss and influence. Representatives from central and local government, philanthropy and other sector thought leaders will be there and are a vital part of the conversations we have.

This year it will be in Kaitaia on the 23-25 Oct with the 24th set aside for the three networks to work through their sector specific programmes.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
