New Zealand Story has been shortlisted in the 2023 City Nation Place Awards, recognising its work promoting Aotearoa New Zealand on the global stage.
The FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023™ is officially upon us, and with it comes an amazing line up of events and activities for New Zealanders and visitors alike. And the best part? There are lots of FREE things to do, see and take part in during the tournament, from 20 July – 20 August.
That’s right New Zealand – it’s time to get behind our amazing female athletes and teams! In just two short weeks, Aotearoa will host the largest women’s sporting event on the planet – and as co-hosts of the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023TM – we’ve got front row seats to the action.
Hollywood screen creative, activist and football enthusiast Natalie Portman will join former Prime Minister Dame Jacinda Ardern, FIFA General Secretary Fatma Samoura, and Black Ferns star Ruby Tui for EQUALIZE: The State of Play, a discussion on equity for women at Auckland’s Aotea Centre on August 14. The event is the finale of a nationwide free entry EQUALIZE speaker series celebrating women in sport, business, culture and society.
This week sees the launch of The Greatest Goal, a football-focused, crowd-funding campaign asking visitors to our beautiful country, as well as those that live here, to celebrate Aotearoa New Zealand co-hosting the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023™ by donating a native tree.
