GPS 2016 – Growing Pasifika Solutions for our Young People

Le Va is excited to be hosting our third national conference: Growing Pasifika Solutions for our Young People

This is not a business as usual conference. It has been co-created by young Pasifika people to promote and share solutions that work for them in social sector areas – such as preventing violence, addiction, mental well-being, cultural identity, suicide prevention, public health and education.

It will bring together people from across sectors to showcase cutting edge solutions from the perspective of Pasifika young people, within their families and communities.

GPS is of value for anyone whose work impacts on Pasifika young people, particularly in New Zealand’s social sectors.

Led by youth
With a conference focused on Pasifika young people, we have established the Youth Action Komiti to co-create, co-design and co-deliver the conference.
They’re a clever bunch.

Backed by experts
We have assembled a cast of inspirational keynote speakers across a range of sectors.
These people are passionate about our Pasifika communities and ready to make change.
