Te Pūaha Talks is a programme of free online capability building webinars funded by Foundation North.  

Our first webinar for 2023 was Ngahere, a workshop focused on wellbeing. It offers tools to help people explore how to embed wellbeing practices in their lives, and the systems in which they live and work. Facilitated by Centre for Social Impact associates Tuihana Ohia and Louise Marra it offers insights into how connectivity enables wellbeing; how to build a greater sense of connection and draw nourishment from Papatūānuku; and how to bring this connectivity to our whānau, work, and community.

Our final webinar for 2022 was Communications in the Good Times & the Bad. This webinar and our other 2022 webinars are all available online here in our Te Pūaha o te Ako kete.
