In this course, students will evaluate different forms of leadership and apply relevant concepts to their own professional or community contexts. Utilising the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals as examples will invite students to situate local youth and community issues in a global context. Students will engage with a local community (including youth) and tangata whenua to identify a local challenge or issue and develop a community action project (CAP) proposal. This will be accomplished in collaboration with the community and will include consideration of Te Tiriti o Waitangi articles and the principles of participation, protection, and partnership.
