The tale that people are selfish and that these selfish impulses create the good society  keeps us separated from each other – fearful of being nice in case we will miss out. The truer tale is one of joy – people are nice! We yearn to give freely of our talents and help others. These pro-social impulses are also the ones that create the good society. The time has come to turn the tables – and tell this tale of joy loud and clear.

The infinite game, Waiheke, and tourism: A workshop

To launch the draft Waiheke Sustainable Community and Tourism Strategy, the Working Group is inviting community members to join in a fun, interactive ‘playshop’ run by sustainability and psychology researcher and author, Niki Harré.

The “infinite game” is a fun, interactive experience with a focus on community and environmental sustainability, where the whole community is the winner. By playing the infinite game, you will be able to explore the values of the Waiheke community and the impact of tourism on those values, now and in the future. You will be acting to encourage connections between people and with the natural world, human expression and creativity, new life and vitality. 

Workshop numbers are limited to 40, so please RSVP to Denise Wiremu, denisewiremu@gmail.com or 0274 738694 to book your place.
