Conversations on human rights in our country

    Speak Up Kōrerotia - Raising children as upstanders

    Speak Up Kōrerotia - Raising children as upstanders

    In May every year, kura and workplaces across Aotearoa celebrate Pink Shirt Day. It's a chance to visibly demonstrate our intolerance of bullying, and our commitment to diversity and being an upstander. With research showing that victims of bullying often find the inactions of bystanders more hurtful than the actual bullying behaviour, Mark Wilson (Pink Shirt Day), Mace Malcolm (InsideOUT) and Meg Craig (Elephant Trust) discuss what being an upstander means in the context of playground bullying: basically, taking action to support the victim. Their core message is that 'little things' can make a huge difference, and that acts of kindness and awhi can take place after the bullying act, not only in the moment.

    Speak Up Kōrerotia - Arguments for lowering the voting age

    Speak Up Kōrerotia - Arguments for lowering the voting age

    In January 2024, the recently appointed National/Act/NZ First government declared it would halt proceedings, started under Labour, to lower the voting age from 18 to 16. This declaration was made the same week as the release of the Independent Electoral Review, which included a recommendation to lower the voting age, and came only months after the Supreme Court ruled that the current voting age of 18 breached the Bill of Rights Act in terms of age discrimination.
    So what now? On this show, guests Daborah Hart (Independent Electoral Review Chair), Sage Garrett (youth advocacy group Make it 16), Bronwyn Wood (Te Herenga Waka) and Darcy Lawrey (interested young person) share their views on why the voting age should change, and how the government's announcement may impact this goal.
