False Economy: The High Cost of a Low Wage Economy

The Office of Denise Roche, Green Party MP, have advised us of the following Pecha Kucha-style event beind held in Dunedin on 20 November:

False Economy: The High Cost of a Low Wage Economy

How the government’s drive for a low wage economy affects us all – and what we can do about it

7pm-9pm, Tuesday 20 November
Dunningham Suite, Dunedin Public Library, 4th Floor, 230 Moray Place
(light refreshments provided)

Jan Logie and Denise Roche, Green Party MPs, are on a national tour to highlight the impact of the government’s funding cuts and policy reforms on our communities. Based on the increasingly popular Pecha Kucha format, these fast-paced presentations typically include a range of speakers from different organisations including those representing Women, Workers, Disabled People, Youth, Children, Refugee and Migrant communities, Māori, Pasifika, the Mental Health community, Problem Gambling and more.

Pecha Kucha events consist of up to a dozen presentations, each presenter having 20 slides, each shown for 20 seconds. Each presenter has just 6 minutes and 40 seconds to explain their ideas before the next takes the stage. The format keeps presentations concise and fast-paced and is being used increasingly as a way for people to meet, show their work, exchange ideas, and network.

This is the start of a campaign to highlight the problems being experienced by community organisations in the current economic environment. Denise and Jan will do a summary presentation connecting the dots between presentations and then we’ll open for discussion.
