21st Century Motueka - Unleashing Creativity for an Economy of Thriving

Read the report of this event here »

This event, part of the Motueka 2030 series, will generate practical and innovative ideas for a strong, enduring Motueka economy.

We seek a community wide focus on ultra-creativity, collaboration between sectors and the uptake of new learning skills to answer the compelling needs of the future in order to develop a sustainable and thriving economy.

The workshop leaders will present an array of inspiring examples of progressive communities where interweaving economics, learning and well-being has become the pathway to a sustainable future.

This workshop spotlights technologies that are both enabling and necessitating adaptive change.
