Broadcaster John Campbell in conversation with five students from intermediate schools in Auckland about their expectations for civil society in 2030.

The first session of The Civics and Media Project Workshop 2, held in Auckland on 27 October, was an engaging conversation between Broadcaster John Campbell and five students from intermediate schools in Auckland about how they see New Zealand in the future.  The purpose of the workshop was to address the question: ‘What will a well-informed, civically-engaged New Zealand look like in 2030?’ The children’s insights helped shape the vision: To ensure all New Zealanders in 2030 have an accurate understanding of the world they live in, and the ability and skills to bring about change.
