Next week at the LongTermNZ workshop, 20 young people will draft a Youth Statement on New Zealand’s Long-term Fiscal Position. This statement is written for youth, by youth! No matter what policy issues push your buttons –  climate change, social welfare, health, education, justice, animal welfare – this lunch is for you. Decisions made now will have an enormous impact on the purse we will inherit.

Learn more about the four-day workshop at and join us for the final presentation, followed by a networking lunch to explore what we need to do:  Thursday 13 December 2012, at 12noon, at Te Wharewaka o Poneke (near the McGuinness Institute office on the waterfront). Everyone is welcome, so tell your friends. Please RSVP to
