Growing a great region where young people thrive
The Masterton, Carterton and South Wairarapa District Councils (Wairarapa District Councils) recognise the importance of having rangatahi (youth – 12–24-year-olds) voice contribute to council decision-making and want to reflect this commitment through the review of the current Wairarapa Rangatahi Strategy 2016-2021. The review will deliver a revised strategy and new action plan.
It is important that rangatahi are at the centre of this project and help drive and shape the strategy and action plan for the councils. If you are interested in knowing more, sign up to receive updates below.
There will be a range of ways for rangatahi (youth) to be involved.
We’re developing a range of ways for our rangatahi (youth) to be involved; these include workshops, a focus group, and a survey. This review provides an opportunity for rangatahi to:
- assist and advise the three Wairarapa District Councils on how to help grow a great region where young people thrive,
- help the three Wairarapa District Councils identify key barriers and issues for youth in our region,
- bring extra insight to our Councils (a youth perspective) to solve problems facing a changing world,
- connect with decision makers to make sure they know the youth perspective and how best to work alongside youth, and
- help the three Wairarapa District Councils prioritise what they should do for youth.
We will provide further information regarding our rangatahi (youth) engagement activities in the coming weeks.
