New Zealand Story video

With the new Rainbow Warrior coming to New Zealand in January 2013 we’ve been thinking about the Warrior’s place in New Zealand history in the context of reflecting on our national character.

With some help from Perendale Productions we’ve made a short video, which we’ve called ‘New Zealand Story’. It includes references to over 30 people and events in New Zealand’s history that all, in some way, embody the best of the New Zealand character. It is far from exhaustive, but, touches on just some of those who have defined our country and its spirit and characterise our historical ability to overachieve in a uniquely Kiwi way.

As the year comes to an end, we hope ‘New Zealand Story’ might prompt us all to reflect on the sort of country we want to be and how we collectively write the next chapter.

Here’s the link to the video: http://www.greenpeace.org/new-zealand/en/new-zealand-story
