Council is calling on rangatahi aged 15 to 24 years old to share what’s important to them and what they enjoy doing here in te Tairāwhiti .
The initiative is called ‘What’s up rangatahi?’ and is being led by Alex Andrews, this year’s Council engagement summer student.
Engagement manager Fraser Hopkins says youth make up almost a quarter of the region’s population the data will inform a youth engagement strategy.
“Rangatahi are our future leaders and their voices are important to Council’s decision making. We’re looking to understand a little more about their perspectives and what they’re into,” he said.
Over the next month we’ll be holding focus groups, interviews and encouraging them to complete our online survey”
“With a simple, easy to use format, it will take less than 5 minutes of their time and for one lucky person there’s a chance to win bag of goodies.”
