BGI facilitated a diverse group of about 20 young people (who named themselves Te Ahi o Ngā Rangatahi (The Fire of Youth)) to identify issues facing young people and develop a youth participatory research project. We met every Wednesday here at BGI to share kai, build relationships and plan and develop our project. After extensive community mapping, the young people decided that mental wellbeing would be the focus of their research project and went about surveying young people all over Wellington to find out what they thought about this issue and how Wellington as a city meets the wellbeing needs of its young people.
