OUR OUTRIGGER CANOES OF SCIENCE, EDUCATION, INNOVATION FOR POLYNESIAN & PASIFIKA YOUTH POPULATIONS OF THE WORLD – NEW ZEALAND SPIRIT RISING & INVESTING IN PI YOUTH
Because science, innovation, education are New Zealand peoples spirit - of our strong outrigger canoe culture of navigatable adventurous and creative discoveries into new horizons of destiny and change too:
In investing R&D capital into our future innovative inventors of sustainability and peace news:
In my mind I see, children all throughout the South Pacific, even up to the Marshall Islands into even the island of Guam, maybe Vietnam too. They each have a laptop and tablet each. On the internet they are taught curriculum subjects from New Zealand.
Their learning is accelerated and a generation of Polynesian (and Asian?) children arise, supported by their New Zealand friends nearby and afar, to allow the potential of Polynesia’s youth to be all they will be, for the gifts in their lives the world will need to be stronger, smarter, more creative – in the years to come. If we all do this for them that’s so going to happen.
This is the burden that sits very strongly on me today. I really want to see our groovy and unique white, Pakeha New Zealanders do it, just to teach the world what cool New Zealand citizens look like as architects of the world – and to push back the powers of greed, on our Island dwelling Polynesian friends.
Although we admire the braun of Polynesian peoples natural dna (Jonah Lomu storms to mind) - it is their Peaceful spirit (most days), their respect for their elderly, their creativity so rich yet largely untapped, their spiritual gifts, the notable and noble warmth of heart, a trusting innocence in the good of the wider world and their unique thoughts that dwell within their minds; that we will need to see more of in the world, twenty years out from this point. We need to invest more in it.

LIFTING CHILDREN’S EDUCATION TO THE NEXT LEVEL WITH PRIVATE INVESTMENT – SIR ROBERT JONES, GARETH MORGAN, SAM MORGAN CAN’T WAIT TO DO MORE
Sir Robert Jones and Gareth Morgan did some huff, puff n’ go speel - for the homies of the hoods where they first started from in New Zealand.
Bob played grumpy smurf telling lower earners children (in the low decile schooling system) to lift their game with zero support and Gareth played eco-conscious humanitarian with more soul. Young Sam Morgan appeared too in the story by Jehan Casinader. Watch here.
My thoughts: If Beverly Hills can send a US$50 million message towards community services this week from the 90+ year-old set, then that’s a good standard to emulate maybe. Giving should not be a complusion, just something you do when you see an opportunity to invest in a future legacy that’s noble. Children are always that.
