Wānanga / Talanoa

The wānanga and talanoa is a dedicated space in the programme to discuss your Hui Fono experience. In this session we discuss key learning, ask questions, share insights and offer ideas about how this might be applied in our work and back in our communities. The concept of talanoa builds on the definitions that it is ‘a personal encounter where people story their issues, their realities and aspirations’ (Vaioleti, 1999-2003), and wānanga ‘as a doorway into higher learning’ (Turia, 2006). A full outline of this session with agenda will be included in the Programme booklet.

Panel of Generations

We will be inviting a select group of participants to share their reflections on the last day, so be ready, it might be you we ask!
