About Economic Opportunities and the Wellington Forum
This website provides a place where those who have a positive contribution to make to Wellington's 'Economic Opportunities' can have a voice.
We define Economic Opportunities as a Community of Interest in the Wellington Forum this way:
Create opportunities for all Wellingtonians – those already here and those still to arrive - to sustainably thrive and prosper in the Wellington Region. Bring your ideas for social enterprise, reducing inequality, eradicating poverty and enabling whanau to enjoy healthy, sustainable lives across generations.
Economic Opportunities and the Wellington Forum
Since 2011 the Wellington Forum (previously Rotary Forum) has provided an annual focal-point for people to come together to hear a diverse range of inspiring speakers and an exciting opportunity for Wellingtonians to influence discussion on a range of topics.
A new feature of the Wellington Forum is ‘Communities of Interest’ where forum participants identify with particular areas of interest that they wish to influence. In addition, forum websites in topic areas, are allowing participants to contribute their views online. This 'Community of Interest' website is one example.
More on the Wellington Forum
Wellington is a vibrant city and we are proud to live in here. The Wellington Forum is a tangible reflection of this.
From the very beginning, the topics have been highly relevant to Wellingtonians, but it has evolved in recent years to showcase topics about Wellington’s future – questions about what tomorrow should bring and ideas that inspire action.
Audiences are a cross-section of Wellington society; multi-generational, from all walks of life and inclusive of young people, Māori, Pasifika, Pākehā and new immigrants. The common denominator is a passion for discovery and a commitment to tangible change.
