About Us

Our Vision: Auckland – the world’s most active city.

Aktive is committed to helping people and communities across Auckland to achieve sporting habits for life. As both Sport New Zealand’s and Auckland Council’s strategic partner in Auckland, this means investing in organisations and projects that will get more people recreating and playing sport, with focuses on young people and identified communities.

Our purpose is to provide leadership to the Auckland region that encourages, enables and inspires Aucklanders to lead more active lives through sport and active recreation.


Our Strategic Priorities

More Aucklanders More Active

With a particular focus on school aged children and low-participation communities, and an emphasis on introducing and supporting more coaches.

Stakeholder Alignment and Sector Development

Especially shared services, coach development and supporting sporting codes’ capability development.

Spaces and Places

Improving access to facilities and spaces for all Aucklanders.
