Rotary Forum 2013
How the Crown, MMP and the Treaty could change our lives.
Rotary Forum 2013 was held on
Tuesday 12 November at Rydges Hotel, Wellington.
What kind of democracy will we have in 10 or 40 year’s time? What will New Zealand citizenship look like? Where does the Treaty of Waitangi fit with all this?
The long term nature of our society and the very rules by which our country has been governed are being questioned with an eye towards determining which arrangements will work best for New Zealand. Everything from how we vote, create laws, settle disputes, even the flag we salute may be affected.
Now in its third successful year, this highly informative forum asked some of the biggest questions to face New Zealanders for generations.
