The LongTermNZ workshop brought together 27 young people to draft a Youth Statement on New Zealand’s Long-term Fiscal Position. Participants attended the two-day conference, Affording our Future, on Monday 10 and Tuesday 11 December, which was hosted by the Treasury and Victoria University of Wellington. See the about page for more information about these organisations, and the FAQ page for more detail about the workshop.
The participants also had the opportunity to discuss their thoughts with the Minister of Finance, Hon Bill English, and Paul Goldsmith MP on the morning of Thursday 13 December, 2012. They then presented the document to invited guests and interested members of the public at 12.00pm that day.
