Envisioned as a community benefit activity rather than a fundraiser, Wellington Forum leverages off the club’s extensive networks and expertise to stimulate debate on important local issues.
Since 2011 the Wellington Forum (previously Rotary Forum) has provided an annual focal-point for people to come together to hear a diverse range of inspiring speakers and an exciting opportunity for Wellingtonians to influence discussion on a range of topics.
From the very beginning, the topics have been highly relevant to Wellingtonians, but it has evolved in recent years to showcase topics about Wellington’s future – questions about what tomorrow should bring and ideas that inspire action.
Audiences are a cross-section of Wellington society; multi-generational, from all walks of life and inclusive of young people, Māori, Pasifika, Pākehā and new immigrants. The common denominator is a passion for discovery and a commitment to tangible change.
The Forum Committee have always been passionate and dedicated to making a difference to Wellington in conjunction with our partner the Victoria University of Wellington. More information.
