Attendees at the Civic participation workshop

On Friday 7 December 2018, the Office of Ethnic Communities concluded the face to face consultations for our civic participation project.

The aim of this project is to reduce barriers and create opportunities for ethnic communities to engage in all aspects of New Zealand civic life.

We spoke to more than 300 members of ethnic communities across Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch to understand their views and experiences of civic participation.
