2016 One-day Workshop Series

One of the observations made by participants at the 2015 TacklingPovertyNZ workshop was that poverty in New Zealand is too complex an issue to be overcome with a blanket solution. Instead, solutions must be sought at a local level to acknowledge that poverty has vastly differing consequences for people in different areas of New Zealand. This is a daunting prospect, requiring an enormous amount of difficult and rigorous work. As a first step in this direction, TacklingPovertyNZ has toured the country with a series of one-day workshops specifically designed to provide a platform for local voices to address poverty.
