Technology. Sustainability. Ethics. Our 2016 speakers highlighted the role we, as consumers, play in setting the guidelines for ethical business. What decisions do we make on a daily basis? How do these choices impact our people and environment? Our response is an individual choice that will pave the way for generations to come.

We explored cultural identity, ecological issues, technological innovations, and welcomed Sir Ray Avery to shed light on good old Kiwi ingenuity. We were moved by incredible musical and artistic performances. Above all, we learned that people can connect with you better when you are staying true to your authentic self.
19 JULY 2014
We uncovered the motivations and emotions of Maori at Gallipoli, questioned whether modern lives are longer lives, contemplated bringing our enemies closer, and challenged our idea of a clean green New Zealand. We also talked gluten, mindfulness, pets, learning differently, and microbes.
30 JULY 2013
We bring solar power to an isolated community, question what is really in our food, talk compassionate business, and look to the humble washing machine to illustrate how machinery has changed the lives of generations before us, along with people living below the poverty line today. A local legend is doing the hard mahi to inspire our tamariki to unite and see their potential through the collaboration of education and entertainment.
