Today on The Wire,

Sam Denne talks to Jeni Cartwright from Child Poverty Action Group about the Child Poverty Monitor, childhood poverty in Aotearoa and the recommendations put forth to the government by the Welfare Expert Advisory Group.


Earlier this year on Green Desk, Mitchell Fuller spoke to Hugh Wilson from the Hinewai reserve. In July this year there was a film made about the reserve and about Hugh Wilson, the Manager. The Fools and Dreamers film made by Happen Film can be found on YouTube.

We thought we would revisit this story from earlier this year. Mitchell and Hugh discuss the carbon credits system available at Hinewai which has become increasingly popular with large businesses allowing them to offset unavoidable greenhouse gas emissions. The system has allowed the reserve to expand and encompass a significant area on the peninsula which has rejuvenated naturally without planting and minimal pest control. Mitchell begins by asking Hugh a little bit about the history of the Reserve and how its arrived at where its at today. 

We were also joined by Erin Maloney of Tiny Nation to discuss the release of He taonga te Tamaiti: Every child a taonga: The Early Learning Action Plan 2019-2029, a foundational plan from the Coalition government to create  long-lasting changes to early learning.
