Voices of Mokopuna

Mokopuna can only live their best lives when they have a genuine say in how things affect them. All mokopuna in Aotearoa have the right to a genuine voice in issues that matter. It is up to everyone from leaders, policy makers and communities to ensure the voices of mokopuna are heard and acted on. When mokopuna have a say, policy works a lot better for them, their whānau, and their community.

Mai World

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 as an Office.

Mokopuna have a clear idea on what they need to live a good life. When we listen to and value their voices, we can improve how everything from courts to schools can work for them. The Mai World team is dedicated to amplifying their voices on all kinds of topics:
