Join us for two days of sharing, learning, and co-creation as we unpack how we can strengthen students’ critical thinking, so they can make healthy decisions in a world where alcohol and other drugs exist.
We will share learnings from New Zealand secondary schools who worked with local alcohol and other drug services to develop Tūturu. Listen to them share their approaches to student wellbeing, the tools and pathways they created to help their rangatahi build agency, critical thinking skills, and decision-making confidence around alcohol and other drugs, and create the way forward together.
