Preparing the Ground for the Next Progressive Majority

Preparing the Ground for the Next Progressive Majority

The Destination will be an extended session intended for those who wish to see a change of government in 2017 to one with a more progressive social democratic policy agenda and ethos.

This 2015 seminar, to be held in Auckland on April 18 and Wellington on May 10, will pose the critical questions that need to be addressed and answered if the outcome of a change of government is to be realised. Further sessions are planned for 2016 and 2017.

Basic assumptions are that:

• overall political performance will need to be significantly improved

• fiscal and economic policy will need to be agreed

• credible party political co-operation will be a sine qua non

• political communication will need to gain voter support

• political organisation will need to be based on voter issues


Hon Michael Cullen – an overall picture of what needs to be done politically to achieve a change to progressive government

Peter Harris – fiscal and economic policy for a progressive government

Sarah Helm/Tracey Martin MP – political co-operation for progressive government

Richard Harman - political communication in the 21st century

Paul Eagle – community organisation for political change

Our MC will be Michele A'Court

The Fabians will be represented by

Paul Chalmers - Auckland

Mike Smith - Wellington

When & Where

Auckland 18 April 1:00-4:15pm Owen G Glenn Building, Auckland University

Wellington 10 May 1:00-4:15pm St Andrew's Church, 30 The Terrace

Although attendance is free, early registration is encouraged as seating is strictly limited.
