New Zealand's future

From The Weekend, 8:13 am on 27 December 2014

The presents and the Christmas dinner are behind us, the next set of festive decisions looming are New Year's resolutions. But why stop at a year? What about decisions that could shape the next 5, 10, even 50 years? Decisions about the diversifying and ageing population, climate change, land and water use; issues for Maori and for our work, diet, and health. Futurist and consultant Dr Stephanie Pride, futurist and principal scientist in Sustainability and Society at Landcare Research Bob Frame, Ngati Whatua Orakei trustee Sharon Hawke, and Richard Bedford the Sharon Professor of Migration Studies at AUT discuss what's bubbling under right now that will affect New Zealand in the future.
