“Emerging from the Bubble”
In 2020, all around the world, people were forced to change the way they thought, worked and communicated with each other. New Zealand established a bubble around its borders and Kiwis formed bubbles around their whānau. Aotearoa became a world-leading “team of 5 million” and while many parts of the world continued to be restricted, New Zealanders began to emerge into what is now the ‘new normal’.
In 2021 Kiwi communities, businesses and industries continue to navigate this new normal and start to look forward to what’s next. Although the bubble is not yet a thing of the past, this year is New Zealand’s chance to shape the future of Aotearoa and te ao whānui.
Join us for some breakfast for a kōrero with some of New Zealand’s leading thinkers and doers, as they tackle what it looks like to emerge from the bubble and how Aotearoa can take its place in a changed world.
