The idea of these publications is to provide an opportunity for the New Zealand public to begin thinking through some of the complexities of achieving development in our global community. These publications can be used as tools for teachers to start their students discussing some of the complexities we raise, thinking through various solutions, and continuing on a longer term learning path. Our ultimate aim as a thinking organisation is to have highly engaged, critical thinking, active supporters who appreciate that a development organisation needs to be dynamic in its approach to development. We need to be open to new ways of working in order to continue providing support that best addresses the problems faced in global communities.
We hope you will enjoy reading the publications in this series and will encourage your friends and family to read these as well. Teachers - we also encourage you to order these as excellent teaching resources for your students. As always we welcome your thoughts and feedback.
