Te Pūtahitanga o te Waipounamu is excited to bring together a collection of Whānau Ora initiatives from around Te Waipounamu to share their story with you at the 2019 Annual Whanau Ora Symposium.
We are thrilled to host an exciting range of guest speakers, which include:
Rangatahi advocate Tamatha Paul
Rangimarie Parata Takurua
Minister for Whānau Ora, Hon. Peeni Henare
Dr Catherine Savage
Jaye Pukepuke, Bros for Change

Over three days this symposium promises to inspire you; to bare the realities of the tough challenges we face together and celebrate whānau innovation creating positive change within Te Waipounamu.
It promises to make you laugh – you may even be moved to tears at times – and we will celebrate the essence of Whānau Ora through the magic of whanaungatanga.

As dawn breaks the sun beams through,
Giving light to opportunity; giving light to hope
