Over the coming week the KiwiConnect team is hosting a gathering of New Zealand’s brightest minds along with international guests, to share unique gifts, cross-pollinate ideas, and explore new frontiers in service to a more beautiful world.

We live in a complex world, made up of countless moving parts. It is through sharing diverse ideas and expertise, and taking the time to understand the interconnected nature of societies, economies and ecosystems, that we are able to co-create holistic, scalable solutions that can have a lasting impact on the world.

Global digital connectivity has flattened the globe, making it easier than ever to collaborate with partners across the sea.  New Zealand is uniquely positioned to take advantage of improved access to global networks, and build upon our strong foundation as a nation of do-it-yourself inventors and innovators.

Yet we humans are a social species, and we are at our best when we have face-to-face time to nurture creativity and plant seeds. Real magic happens when we give ourselves the freedom to engage in bold, open conversations and explore ideas without boundaries, expectations or set deliverables.

This is what New Frontiers is about. In our role as a builder of bridges between purposeful communities, KiwiConnect is bringing together participants from the realms of technology, agriculture, arts, education, digital media, entrepreneurship, investment and government, with the intention of facilitating emergent conversations between people whose paths might not always cross.

Watch this space over the coming weeks, for articles and videos sharing learnings and insights from event participants. 

Let the co-creation begin!
