The Te Pūtahitanga o Te Waipounamu Symposium is an opportunity to celebrate the incredible work done throughout the year. It provides a space to reconnect with one another, strengthen relationships, and above all to remind ourselves of the why behind Whānau Ora — seeing our whānau and communities thrive.

The theme for the 2021 symposium was – paiheretia ngā wawata, paiheretia te tangata, paiheretia ki te rangimarie! Bind the aspirations, bind the people, bind with peace!

A big mihi to Te Rūnanga o Ōtākou, who hosted and planned the 2021 symposium in Ōtepoti. See below for videos of the awesome speakers and their inspiring kōrero.
