Singapore is an inspirational location for our mahi, offering a glimpse into extraordinary agricultural circumstances amidst scarce land resources.
As we explore this dynamic city-state, we will delve into our two starting provocations that are especially relevant for New Zealand’s food and fibre sector:
1.Singapore as a snapshot of a resource-constrained future:
Discover how Aotearoa New Zealand can learn from Singapore's challenges and prepare for feeding and clothing more people on an increasingly populous planet.
2. Singapore as a crossroads and crucible of food cultures:
Explore how industry players carve a successful niche in this tight space, offering valuable insights into market dynamics and consumer behaviour.
Who should attend?
The 2024 Te Hono Capability and Insights Tour in Singapore aims to create a dynamic and diverse cohort that reflects the richness of perspectives within New Zealand's food and fibre sector.
In this spirit, we especially encourage applications from women and Māori leaders who bring unique insights and experiences to the table. We believe that a diverse group fosters innovation and enriches the learning experience for all participants.
We are seeking up to 20 emerging leaders who think differently and possess the following criteria:
Mindset: Curious, courageous, and committed to driving change in New Zealand’s food and fibre sector
