Nina Santos


Nina is the social media coordinator for the All-of-Government response group, Unite Against COVID-19 and the Ministry for the Environment. She’s also pursuing a law & arts degree. She has previously been involved with the Sir Peter Blake Trust, New Zealand Youth Parliament, and the Ministry of Youth Development, and was named one of the Foundation’s 25 under 25 to watch in 2019.

Nina has taken advantage of many of the opportunities that the network provides, including speaking at the Sustainability Hui, running a workshop at Festival for the Future, and travelling to Japan in 2019 for a week-long visit alongside 15 of her fellow members.

Nina says, “I've always loved Japan, but this trip has reaffirmed my commitment to Asia-New Zealand relations. Whether its through sports diplomacy, food or business, its important to harness the value from the relationship between New Zealand and Japan, and New Zealand and Asia.”
