Over two weekends in May, some 1,400 New Zealanders met at two summits as part of the Education Conversation|Kōrero Mātauranga.

Participants included teachers, children and young people, parents, principals, Māori, Pacific people, board members and employers, along with disabled people, politicians and education experts. 

These New Zealanders, of all ages, ethnicities and backgrounds, came together to talk about the future of learning in New Zealand, and to plan the world’s best education system for all our learners.

The importance of a future education system encompassing wellbeing, cultural competence, identity, parents, and community, and that builds great relationships between teachers and learners, featured strongly in many of the conversations.

Feedback was overwhelmingly positive. People have told us these were the most exciting, diverse, inclusive and thought-provoking education events ever held in New Zealand.

We know many of you want to keep the conversation going. To help you, we will have a ‘conversation starter kit’ and other resources available very soon.
