Tō mātou arotahinga mō te tau e heke mai ana | Our focus for the next year
Over the next year we will continue to progress the work that is already underway. A number of our year one actions will become overarching guiding principles for our future work.
Our guiding principles

- Collaborate on education to employment initiatives across the region, such as supporting the Education to Employment broker, schools, and industry to establish relevant academies in Marlborough secondary schools.
- Influence efforts across all our focus sectors to help transition to a more resilient, low emissions economy, contributing to the Government’s target for net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
- Advocate for local data collection, presentation, and insights that are relevant to Marlborough, including Māori/iwi data.
- Connect to the Te Tauihu Intergenerational Strategy, including by collaborating with the Nelson Tasman RSLG on Aquaculture.
- Advocate for Mā Māori, Mō Māori, ki a Māori solutions to workforce and skills issues.
