The Wellbeing Series: Manawatu

The Wellbeing Budget is here, so what are the biggest challenges and opportunities for regional New Zealand in digital, sustainability and mental health; and how does our biggest industry, agriculture, keep up with ensuring a productive and sustainable sector?

Following the Government’s delivery of the inaugural 2019 Wellbeing Budget, this regional series will highlight the Government’s commitment of wellbeing and the environment at the pinnacle of New Zealand public policy while engaging community organisations and business in a multi-disciplinary dialogue on shifting economic policy to promote greater wellbeing within our regions, nationwide, and also on a global scale.  

The series is a roadshow featuring panel discussions in Northland, Waikato, Manawatu, and Canterbury.
