Festival for the Future in Auckland

Festival for the Future in Auckland, September 5–7 // Early-bird Tickets &

This years' Festival for the Future is happening in Auckland, at AUT's beautiful Sir Paul Reeves Building in the central city – September 5–7.

The Festival is a critical part of the ecosystem we're helping to build to support young New Zealanders to unleash their potential to change the world. As part of it, we'll also be launching applications for the next evolution of Live the Dream, an intensive accelerator programme to help grow New Zealand's next generation of social entrepreneurs.

Right now, our tiny but powerful crew at Inspiring Stories Trust are working away on the Festival programme – it's gearing up to be a collaboration of epic proportions, and we're delighted to be working with a range of great partners. We'll be announcing the line up in June.

Please join us – we'd love to have you involved as part of the next evolution!

Early Bird Tickets Now Available

Early-bird student ticket: $49

Early-bird waged/professional: $149

Gordon Campbell: On The TPP Deal Reached In Atlanta

Yes, the TPP has helped to knock a few points off the tariffs facing our exporters. Yet some of those alleged dollar gains may well have been made regardless over time – and without the negative baggage of the concessions in the non-trade areas (intellectual property, copyright extensions, investor-state dispute mechanisms etc) that the TPP deal also brings in its wake.
