What does a good life for children and young people and youth wellbeing look like in Aotearoa
What makes a good life for children and young people, and what does youth wellbeing look like in Aotearoa?
 
With this Government's focus on wellbeing we've seen some really good resources come to light recently.
 
 
The Office of the Children's Commissioner asked over 6,000 children and young people for their views on what wellbeing means to them, what a good life is and what they thought were the most important areas to focus on to make things better for all children and young people. The report identifies four key insights about what a good life means, and what we could focus on to improve wellbeing for all children and young people.
 
 
Action Station, with the support from Ara Taiohi – peak body for youth development, asked more than 1000 taiohi (young people) aged 12-24, and a handful of youth workers and policy experts, what youth wellbeing looks like in Aotearoa New Zealand. Action Station Director Laura O'Connell Rapira spoke about Ngā Kōrero Hauora o Ngā Taiohi this morning at a Parliamentary breakfast focused on youth and introduced the many themes that rose to the top from the young people and professionals who participated in this research.
