About

The Christchurch Youth Council (Rūnaka Taiohi o Ōtautahi) is dedicated to advocating for a strong youth voice in Christchurch. We aim to provide young people with the avenue to have their say. We aim to create a community where the youth voice is as valued as all others in the community. Imagine every big conversation about Christchurch's future having a young person around the table: that's our dream!

Our kaupapa:

1) Advocate, support and strive for a stronger voice for young people.

2) Engage and promote the ideas of active citizenship and participation in order to encourage young people to contribute to their communities.

3) Create space and a positive environment to allow young people to speak about, and be involved with issues affecting them.

4) Foster networks and build relationships with decision makers in order to influence change for young people.
