‘Rangatahi pathways to safe, secure and affordable housing’ webinar video

Source Published Date

Rangatahi ki te Kāinga (RKTK) is a BBHTC funded study which aims to understand the housing challenges and aspirations of rangatahi Māori.

RKTK identifies rangatahi as shakers and movers and argues that in order for us to ensure our people have healthy homes that are grounded in culture and identity, rangatahi must have a seat at the table. This webinar will discuss key findings, particularly from interviews and wānanga with rangatahi Māori aged between 17-35 in Tāmaki Makaurau. These pūrākau will reiterate the significant impact of rangatahi storytelling when identifying opportunities for Māori-led housing innovations and tailored support services.

The project adopts a kaupapa Māori approach, that is specifically, “by, for and with rangatahi.” Rangatahi Māori researchers Maia Ratana, Jacqueline Paul, Hanna-Marie Monga and Pania Newton have led this study, both as researchers and as subjects, and are also exploring new ways to disseminate information that appeals to a younger audience.
