Festival for the Future


Kia ora friends and whanau!

I'm delighted to share that our our new Auckland-based crew are now cranking. We're working hard to curate the most epic Festival yet, being hosted in partnership with AUT Business School at their beautiful new Sir Paul Reeves Building in the central city.

Imagine 400 movers and shakers from right across the country converging on Auckland to celebrate youth-led Kiwi innovation, and spark & grow ideas for a better world. From speakers to workshops, entertainment and exhibitions – this years' Festival will be a whole new step up. We'd love you to join us!

Early Bird Tickets Close Monday 30 June
Early-bird student ticket: $49
Early-bird waged/professional: $149
Tickets available via LilRegie: https://festival-for-the-future.lilregie.com/step1

We're working hard to release the programme, which will go live on the website very soon. We're also excited to celebrate the range of amazing partners who are stepping up to make this years' event remarkable – AUT Business School,Vodafone, Leadershp NZ, Kea NZ, Akina, KPMG, Ministry of Youth Development, Auckland Council, Curative, InnovateChange, The BizDojo, and ASB Community Trust amongst many others – massive gratitude. Watch this space!!!

The Festival is a critical part of the growing ecosystem to support young New Zealanders to unleash their potential to change the world. As part of the Festival, we'll also be launching applications for the next evolution of Live the Dream, the accelerator programme to grow New Zealand's next generation of social entrepreneurs & enterprise. Live the Dream will happen in both Auckland and Wellington this summer.
