The Youth Diversity Forum in Ōtautahi Christchurch – which brought together the thinking minds of 90 young leaders – was highlighted in Paris last month. Rangatahi worked together to capture their messages and vision for Aotearoa New Zealand. The resulting booklet has just been shared with all 193 UNESCO member countries at the General Conference that took place in November. You can read the booklet further in this newsletter. Ashlee Peacock, one of our Aotearoa Youth leaders, attended as part of our delegation, and her energy and perspective helped us see our work in a new light – you can read her thoughts on her time in Paris below.
As this is our last newsletter of the year, all of us at the NZ National Commission wish you a joyous holiday season and peaceful summer.
