Social Regeneration Plan Hui
A PROF-ound start to the year for the Murihiku Regeneration office!
On Tuesday 31 January 2023 Murihiku Regeneration began a process to develop a Social Regeneration Plan for Murihiku. Upoko, Terry Nicholas and Te Ara Aukati Kore programme leader, Ivan Hodgetts met with a group of Professors from Massey and Otago Universities:
- Associate Prof Viv Anderson: Dean, Otago University School of Education
- Professor Stuart Carr: UNESCO Chair in Sustainable Livelihoods
- Professor James Liu: Cross cultural psychology, political psychology of change
- Professor Darrin Hodgetts: Professor of Societal Psychology
We appreciate the willingness of these Professors to provide their time and expertise to support and enable our kaupapa.
The focus of discussion was on the scoping and initial framing for development of the plan. Our intention is to develop an evidence informed (credible global effective practice) social regeneration plan for the region out to 2040. It will locate any economic/industry development within a framing context of our medium to long term interests as people.
Ivan said “it was great to bring the Profs together and start this conversation. The shared expertise and insight will be invaluable to ensuring the action we take is well thought out and has a solid foundation for success”.
Thanks to our supporters
