Tue, 26 March: UoA Greens on Campus Meeting

26 March 2013
18:00 - 20:00

The University of Auckland, Arts 1 (Bldg 206), Level 2, Room 216

This will be the first of our regular fortnightly meetings. Come along, meet other Greenies, discuss things that matter.

This week we'll talk about a few options re what issue(s) we'd like the club to focus on this year. Totally up to us members, so pls feel free to make suggestions about what is important to you, to other students, and to New Zealand more generally.

There have been requests that we follow up on the NZ Child Poverty issues that Marianna from Child Poverty Action Group introduced us to during the previous meeting. We are in possession of the price-winning documentary 'Inside Child Poverty' now, and we'll screen it during the second half of the meeting. The documentary explores the last 100 years of child welfare in New Zealand and has been called 'compulsory viewing'.
