Shaping our Future Forum Video

13 January 2017

Ever wondered what happens at our public forums?  This short video is from our first Arrowtown public forum.  We bring our community members together to discuss your vision for the future.  We use world cafe style which gives every person in the room a voice, not just the loudest voice. We workshop the key issues in small groups and look at possible solutions.  This information forms the basis for our volunteer taskforces to develop their strategic reports.

The Queenstown Lakes District is a unique area facing unique challenges.  Many agencies and individuals are focused on the problems of today. Without knowing where we want to go, how can we move in the right direction?
