COVID-19 has changed the world significantly. NZ must respond quickly to create a national vision for NZ in a post-COVID world.

The world’s most successful companies, and increasingly the world’s most successful countries, adopt a long-term, multi-partisan ambitious vision that aligns communities around a few critical outcomes and core values.

 

New Zealand has recently used its high degree of social cohesion and strong leadership to align five million Kiwis in an unprecedented battle against COVID-19.

 

IMAGINE if our five million Kiwis set a vision for our future that ensures NZ’s long term sustainability, productivity, resilience and high-quality outcomes for all people, communities and the environment.

We're looking forward to engaging with you in Visionweek and hearing what YOUR vision is for New Zealand.

Welcome to Visionweek NZ 2020!
