Saw a shared post and comments on Facebook by Matthew Tukaki recently which gives me hope toward relational governance and care. Just imagine a council poised toward communities with wellbeing at the heart of all they do, beginning with care, interest and humanity.
Love, compassion, kindness,respect etc. These principles are what “healthy communities” are made of. Role modelling these for upcoming generations. ❤
“The speaker of the New Zealand Parliament sitting in the speakers chair as Parliament sits to debate and discuss the big issues facing NZ .. with him a beautiful little pepe / baby – the new born son of Maori MP Tamati Coffey – Labour MP for Waiariki – having a feed and a nap. Aside from all the negatives and challenges we deal with isn’t it just bloody awesome when this happens? Speaker Trevor Mallard now that just made a middle aged overweight Maori fulla missing a front tooth get a heart warm!”
