Shaping Our Future

Ever since I first heard about the “Shaping Our Future Forums” I have been keen as mustard to get some of our young people along to participate and have their voice heard. Megan and Blake, from Wanaka’s Young Change Makers, were also keen as mustard to get involved. We had no idea how it was going to work or if would even be interesting. It turns out that it was in fact epic, our voices were heard and now a lot more people know about WYCM!

The conversation and opinions are varied about how we go about using and sharing these amazing resources. Some are easy to find, some are remote, some public & some private. Monday is Regeneration Wanaka and we need to be fed. It seemed only natural for Wanaka’s Young Change Makers to go exploring town looking for some edible delights.
