"IT'S GOOD TO REMEMBER THAT IN CRISES, NATURAL CRISES, HUMAN BEINGS FORGET FOR AWHILE THEIR IGNORANCES, THEIR BIASES, THEIR PREJUDICES. FOR A LITTLE WHILE, NEIGHBOURS HELP NEIGHBOURS AND STRANGERS HELP STRANGERS"
Congratulations! By getting to this page you have already taken the first step towards making the future of New Zealand that much brighter.
You have recognized that there is a problem, and also that the solution is so much bigger than any one individual or group. This realization is one of the most important we can make on this journey – only by working together towards something bigger than ourselves can we hope to succeed. This is the true benefit of being a part of New Zealand Rising, you get to meet up and work together with other groups that share a common vision for the future. It is in these meetings where the real change happens.
Before you fill out the joining form below we would just like to educate you on the process and how it works. Firstly, New Zealand Rising is a team of teams and thus we cater towards leaders/upper management of groups/organizations. The reason for this is that if every interested individual attended the weekly forum, it would never end and nothing productive would get done. Instead we have a representative from each member group that represents their group at the weekly forum.
If you represent a group (doesn’t need to be a big group, just a group of some sort) and you are wanting to join New Zealand Rising then take a look at our Guiding Principles (you will be required to sign a copy as a part of the joining process) and fill out the form below! Make sure that you select ‘Group’ not ‘Individual’.
Now, if you are reading this and are an individual, not a group leader/representative – Do not be discouraged! You can still absolutely be involved with New Zealand Rising. As an individual you can have your ideas presented to the weekly forum by submitting them to the ‘Suggest an Idea’ section at the top of the page. These ideas get submitted to our Strategy team who will then present them at the next weekly forum. The forum below is only for group sign ups but if you want to join our mailing list you can subscribe via the box at the bottom of the page!
