ReGeneration - Deep South

I'm sure you will all remember the Regeneration tour of last year that visited us here in Wanaka and jammed with us for the day.

One of  the things the ReGeneration project aims to do is bring young motivated people together to learn about issues that we are facing and figure out what we can change and do in our towns and country to make the transisiton into future times as easy as possible.

Jinty and many others worked tirelessly on Deep South. 80 young people from across Otago, Southland and Canterbury came together at Puketeraki marae for four days. Holy smokes I don't think I've ever felt so motivated.

Rather than spend ages summing up here, why don't you have a look at the amazing reflection document Jinty has made about the event? You can learn about how we split into three groups, land, coast and water on the Friday. The workshops we took part in on Saturday and all the other super cool times we had in between.

We also made a Google map to document all the action we took part in on the Friday. I'm very excited about the possibilities that the latest technology surrounding maps can bring to help us all promote and synchronise our actions.
