BFF welcomes our next-generation leaders into the fold

We are really pleased to announce that Better Futures Forum is joining forces with School Strike 4 Climate. Representatives from SS4C will be joining our working groups and core group, ensuring that, as a forum, we will also reflect the voice of our next-generation leaders.

And in case you think that these are just a bunch of boisterous youngsters who like skipping school to march on the street, think again. Like us, these young people have been doing a lot of deep thinking about how best to capitalise on the opportunity that the Covid-19 crisis presents. They are our future leaders, and we are proud to have them on board.

  1. Having had one in my house last year I can definitely vouch for their commitment, understanding and energy! They are an articulate group who have dedicated a lot of time to developing their knowledge and how to address the issues. So great that they are on board!

  3. Ana, i whakamahara ahau te whakataukī, Emphatically, I am reminded of the proverb:

    Ka pu te ruha, ka hao te rangatahi – cast aside the old net, a new one is made.

    I think in this instance, the addition of the rangatahi strengthens the old net.

    Mauri ora,
