There is a clear need within Auckland to influence policy, align with others’ strategies where appropriate and influence allocation of resources – given this, there is the need for Aktive to deliver co-ordinated leadership and advocacy with a single compelling voice, with our partners, for the Auckland sport and recreation sector.
Recent Advocacy Work

Auckland Mayoral Candidate Debate 2016
Aktive hosted its first Auckland Mayoral Debate in October 2016. The 6 leading candidates in the contest to be Auckland’s next Mayor set out their support for sport and recreation. The debate opened the eyes of the next Mayor to topics other than the Unitary Plan and housing affordability and will open the door for the sport and recreation conversations.
