Week 14 of the Roadtrip and everyone's thoughts are starting to turn towards home and the big finale in Wellington next week.
The Hawkes Bay seems very busy and populated after a couple weeks around the East Cape. The ReGeneration Roadtrip crew had a full and rewarding week visiting schools, meeting up with local organisers and interviewing amazing changemakers.
The highlight of the week was our last Youth Jam for the 2011 Roadtrip. We had a really moving welcome onto Te Ara o Tawhaki Marae at EIT's Taradale Campus and spent 2 days with an awesome group of young people from five local high schools from around the Hawkes Bay. Workshops included Waste Auditing, Climate Change, Global Poverty, Communications, Leadership and Digital Storytelling. Massive thanks to Emily and the teams from Hawkes Bay Regional Youth Environment Council and the Hastings Youth Council for making our last Jam such a special time.
On Saturday night we drove out to Castle Point for a day's rest and recreation. Wellington here we come!
