Insights/Research

Auckland is a diverse and increasingly changing city that faces a rapidly growing population and changing demographics as well as being subject to global trends on how people participate and engage in sport and recreation.

As a sport sector, it is increasingly important to have the knowledge and insights to adapt with these changes and be at the forefront of gathering new insights to ensure we are meeting the needs and wants of the Aucklanders we service.

At Aktive we are committed to service the Auckland Sport sector by participating in or leading research that will help sports adapt to this changing Auckland.

Below is some of the current research and tools to help understand the changing Auckland.
