Mayor in the Chair at AUT North Shore campus
Len Brown is looking forward to hearing what students think about their region, their council and its plans for the future during his next Mayor in the Chair on Friday 19 April.
The Mayor will be in the foyer of the AUT North Shore AF building from midday until 1pm.
Mayor in the Chair events are held regularly in different locations around Auckland. They are informal lunchtime sessions that allow people to get face to face with their mayor. People are invited to come along, wait their turn, then have a brief one-on-one chat with Len Brown, to ask questions or share their thoughts and concerns about their community.
“Our students are an important part of Auckland’s social fabric and our future. An Auckland full of highly skilled young people will make it a great place to live and work.
“Auckland Council and our local boards are working hard to make sure young people have clear pathways from school to training, further education and jobs. The wellbeing of young people is a key principle of the Auckland Plan – I want to create a city in which every young person can reach his or her full potential,” says Len Brown.
“Our young people are going to be the ones who see the full impact of the Auckland Plan and our draft Unitary Plan, which is now open for feedback. There is a wealth of talent and creative thinking amongst Auckland’s students, and it will be great to chat to them and hear what they have to say.”
The Mayor will set up his chairs in the AUT North shore campus, AF foyer, from midday until 1pm on Friday 19 April.
