Leadership Network Sustainability Hui

The Asia New Zealand Foundation is pleased to invite members of its Leadership Network to attend our Sustainability Hui in Wellington this October.

The goals of this hui are to deepen connections among members, grow network members' knowledge and awareness of issues relating to sustainability, and to build confidence and leadership skills of members.

We will invite speakers to discuss the following broad themes relating to Sustainability:

  • What is happening in Asia? Who are the people, organisations and businesses that are tackling these issues in Asia?
  • What is happening in New Zealand? How are New Zealand tackling these issues at a policy level?
  • What can Leadership Network members do in New Zealand or Asia to get involved?

Given this is a Leadership Network event, there will also be a facilitated leadership-focused workshop to generate a call to action. This session is intended to empower you to think about how you can contribute to sustainability as leaders and professionals.

Although you will be expected to have some knowledge on issues related to sustainability, you won’t be expected to be experts and relevant reading material will be provided prior to the Hui.

Interested Leadership Network members are encouraged to attend the Aotearoa Social Enterprise Hui the day before (Friday 19 October) the Sustainability Hui. A group of sustainability entrepreneurs from Southeast Asia travelling to New Zealand as ASEAN YBLIs will also attend.


The hui will be held in Wellington.  It will begin with an evening session on Friday 19 October and finish mid-afternoon on Sunday 21 October. Participants will be expected to attend the entire hui.


Costs associated with attending the Sustainability Hui (return [seat only] travel, meals, planned activities, accommodation) will be met by the Asia New Zealand Foundation.

Participants will be responsible for getting to and from their local airport and personal spending money.

Please note that the Foundation will not be covering costs to attend the Aotearoa Social Enterprise Forum.
