Te rā o ngā Tamariki | Porirua City Council

CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE STRATEGY: As it's children's day, why not let the kids take the lead! We empowered a team of young people at our children's day event at Aotea Lagoon to take over Porirua City Council's social media platforms and create their own content to share in real time on the day. It was a fantastic result, and the kids (and parents) really enjoyed themselves.
