• A competition to paint a NZ flag with great prizes for the winner

• Storytellers

This is an opportunity for communities to

• Find out about the Living Wage

• Talk about the services in the local community

• Connect to other local organisations that are supporting local communities and get access to information

• Spend time together and strengthen the relationships that make our communities vibrant, liveable and so much more.

We know income inequality impacts on all social indicators of community well-being so we also think it’s important our communities talk to our political leaders in election and can raise the questions they have about well-being in West Auckland.

Local government leaders will answer questions about how they will address well-being in their local communities at 11.30-12.00noon. The panel will include: Deputy Mayor, Penny Hulse and Local Board leaders, Catherine Farmer, Sandra Coney and Shane Henderson.

Political party leaders will form a panel at 1.00-1.30pm to discuss how their policies will foster community well-being and present are:

• Leader of the Labour Party, David Cunliffe

• Leader of the NZ First party, Winston Peters

• Leader of the Green Party, Russel Norman

Others yet to be confirmed – this political conversation invites only those parties currently in Parliament.
