Geoff from Bay of Islands

Local Currency Ideas Meeting
Greetings Some may be aware that Transition Towns Bay Of Islands has a weekly Zoom meeting to discuss ideas for our post CON virus pandemic future. Last Sunday was mainly about getting our local currency up and running again. It was suggested that we have local small group meetings to exchange ideas as to how we can achieve this. There will be an informal get together this Sunday,24 May at 10 am at Klaus Kurz's place, 5632, Russell Whakapara Road a/k/a "Fiddlers Green" Attendees can either make their own way there or, if they present themselves at Russell Baptist church by 9.45 am, they will be welcome to a free ride in Paihia Taxis minibus.
Please feel free to contact me either by e mail (searcher1068@yahoo.com) or by phone 09-402-7506 if you are interested and/or would like more information. Hope to hear from someone at leastYou might care to watch this www.youtube.com... to get some advance information It would also be interesting to hear from a reporter who might be interested in doing a story on something like "local currency" which would benefit our communities, but I won't hold my breath

Things that surprise Kiwis returning to NZ

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
I'm working on a travel story for Stuff about the things that have surprised returning Kiwis about New Zealand. If you have recently returned from overseas or know someone who has, it would be great to hear about the things that have stood out for you, for better or for worse. Whether it's to do with the weather, the cost of things, the public transport, the food, the housing, the people or something else entirely, we'd be keen to hear about it. Please remember that your comment may be included in the article, unless you say you don't want it to be. Thank you.

This degree changed my life!

Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi

Te Tohu Toi Tangata - Bachelor of Humanities

Meet Christina Nuku who graduated with majors in Indigenous Studies and Policy. Through Awanuiārangi, Christina experienced a 3-month exchange programme at the University of Northern British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. She shares “the exchange connected me with the Nisga’a people, First Nations tribal systems, communities and hauora programmes. It informed my studies and opened my mind. It was a genuine privilege to connect with the tangata whenua there, and an opportunity I would never otherwise have had”

“The difference at Awanuiārangi is the whanaungatanga. Our kaiako cultivated a supportive and nurturing environment”.

Study remotely with us in Semester 2!
