Navigating Together is a learning game to build understanding of how the NZEI Te Riu Roa Strategic Plan builds union power to advance quality education.

Close your eyes and imagine your ideal education system. This system is the goal at the top of the mountain. Our job is to climb the mountain to achieve this goal.

We all have different starting points. These are the Strategic Foci identified in the Strategic Plan, giving us a base camp from which to start our climb. On the climb, we have our toolkit in our backpack. This toolkit contains the activities we can do to build power and help us climb the mountain.

Will you defeat the challenges along the way to reach the summit?

Facilitated by Jillian Scammell.
