Recreation creates great New Zealanders. It is a catalyst for healthy people, connected communities and a strong economy. Despite this, central government recreation investment remains limited and local government spending is falling. A change of thinking is required.

  • Priority Two: Grow local and central government investment in recreation
  • Priority Three: More development opportunities for recreation workers to support a sustainable industry that meets the needs and expectations of participants

We are here to support you and have put together a cheat sheet to guide you in your own advocacy.

This is what we are currently working on:
