Through writing, hui and connections with others, we seek to reframe and shape public debate about the role New Zealand plays in the world.

We propose and promote practical and imaginative ideas for Aotearoa's role on the global stage grounded in progressive values and evidence. We seek to identify concrete opportunities where New Zealand can provide diplomatic leadership and support others to advance international action on peace and disarmament, decolonisation and indigenous rights, feminist foreign policy, alternative models of economics and trade, humanitarian action and environmental protection.

We want to ignite a genuine public conversation about our role in the world.

We’re reaching out to young people, holding meetings in regional towns and centres and seeking out fresh voices and diverse perspectives on the role Aotearoa should play in the world. We want to reach beyond traditional trade and diplomacy experts to listen to the experiences and amplify the voices of artists, musicians, activists, sportspeople and others in their representation of Aotearoa in the world.
