Southtechweek19-XLR8 is designed to entice rangatahi into the future world of digital technology and innovation.

What's it all about?

We want to inspire up to 1200 rangatahi gaining access to the digital and technology world and to:

• harness the potential of our tamariki, rangatahi and whānau haua (disabilities whanau) in the digital innovation space, as a means to providing an avenue for them to learn, participate and excite them in the world of technology.
• tap into the innate Māori and Pacific innovation gene that we inherited from our tīpuna since the time our tīpuna arrived to these shores.
We believe this event will be a catalyst to excite, inspire and provide a portal for tamariki, rangatahi and whānau to:

• Gain a snapshot of the digital innovation space
• Expose them to some of our digital innovators, leaders and practitioners
• Enable them to connect with and forge relationships with the innovators, leaders and practitioners
• Enable them to investigate how they can pathway into the digital space in both an educational and potentially a career capacity
• Inspire them to study, learn and mahi within the digital platform (whilst retaining or learning more about their cultural heritage – and know that the two can co-exist rather than be viewed as mutually exclusive domains)
• Get a snapshot of the cool stuff happening on the global stage
• Share and tell our unique stories in the digital space

You should be present for the whole duration of this event.
