Max Harris & Shen Narayanasamy at the Festival of Colour, Wanaka

How can we change the world?

Brexit and Donald Trump have changed the sense of an open, globalised world with countries working together to solve problems from poverty to climate change. How can we change things for the better in this post-truth world that appears to be closing its borders and looking inwards and not outwards?

Shen Narayanasamy is the Human Rights Campaign Director at Getup! – a powerful Australian advocacy group. She leads their campaign against the detention of asylum-seekers on Nauru and has worked on issues of economic justice and land rights. Max Harris is a Rhodes Scholar and fellow of All Souls College, Oxford. Last year in Wanaka, he debated his progressive views about the welfare state with Bill English. This year he launches his book The New Zealand Project, which provides a new approach to politics and policy.
