Engaging with rangatahi

Read a summary of The Hive's engagement with young people on our draft advice.

In 2021, the Commission conducted public consultation on the draft of our first advice to Government, Ināia tonu nei. To ensure young people were able to contribute meaningfully to this consultation we worked with The Hive, a joint project between creative agency Curative and the Ministry of Youth Development to encourage young people to have their say in public policy.   
The Hive worked through the consultation period to gather insights from a wide range of rangatahi. They did this by working with a team of youth or “hivers” to translate the report into easy-to-understand infographics they published on social media. The Hive project reached 192,276 people – the vast majority of them between 13 and 24.
