We are seeking rangatahi to be part of a collaborative project being led by Te Ohu Mana Rangatahi and Hapai te Hauora. KEI AU is a space that puts rangatahi at the centre of a discussion on decision making with a ‘by rangatahi, for rangatahi’ approach.

The objective is to empower them to understand civic engagement in a broad sense, and then consider voting as a choice within the bigger picture. KEI AU will facilitate discussion with rangatahi on:

  • ‘How does civic education for rangatahi affect their participation in decision making’ (How can rangatahi be empowered to become more active members of society and agents of change)
  • Understand the way rangatahi perceive their participation in society
  • What it means to be a member in their community
  • How this influences their decision to partake in other layers of social structures operating within Aotearoa.

Nga wananga – KEI AU will include 3 wananga spread over 3 months. This space will be led by members of Te Ohu Mana Rangatahi representing the ‘by rangatahi for rangatahi’ commitment of KEI AU.

Wananga Tuarua will include:

Gathering insights informed through group discussion and differing views within our whānau. This will include a filmed debate style event on Friday 25th August at 7pm with opposing viewpoints of two panels of guest speakers.
