Aspiring Leaders’ Forum 24th-27th August 2023
The Aspiring Leaders’ Forum on faith and values is an annual event that brings together a diverse group of committed and courageous young leaders from across Aotearoa New Zealand. Guided by facilitators and esteemed national leaders, selected young people will discuss leadership from a narrative point of view, throughout a carefully articulated and varied four-day programme.
Our hope is that Aspiring Leaders’ Forum will build a bridge from one generation to the next, inspiring and elevating our young people’s expectations of leadership.
“Aspiring Leaders’ Forum gave me an inspiration and emboldening to make something of myself.”// Delegate
“The Forum creates a unique opportunity for politicians to explain and discuss their own philosophies. It is a unique and refreshing event in the life of Parliament.”
"I never found a space where faith and values were discussed openly and with such passion. Being in this space, made me appreciate the differences between one another whilst celebrating our similarities."// Delegate
One of my highlights was hearing Rt Hon Jim Bolger speak and being inspired by his experiences as a former Prime Minister. After his talk, I felt empowered, realising that I am already equipped to be a catalyst for change. I can have an impact and bring restoration.// Delegate
