Mokopuna voices in the future of education
The New Zealand Curriculum is being refreshed to better reflect the aspirations and expectations of Aotearoa, New Zealand. This refresh is taking place until 2025.
The Office of the Children’s Commissioner and the Ministry of Education have come together to ensure the voices of mokopuna are honoured. This partnership is a shared commitment to mokopuna being central to and visible in the future of education.
Access to and participation in inclusive and equitable education for all mokopuna is a crucial priority for the Office of the Children’s Commissioner.
Together we will amplify, advocate and protect the voices of all mokopuna throughout this journey.
Mai World: Child and Youth Voices aims to listen to, engage with, and reflect the voices of mokopuna and share them with decision makers. Our team works with mokopuna from all around Aotearoa to understand what they think about a range of topics. We then share their thoughts so they can guide government and community decision making, as well as the work we do.
We also support organisations and groups wanting to engage with mokopuna with a range of resources to help them identify what to think about before starting an engagement and what methods might suit the particular engagement. We also have examples of engagements our team have done with mokopuna and their communities.
