The Dunedin City Council-backed project was launched in May last year to encourage young people to "participate in and lead our city’s organisations, businesses and communities".
Startup Dunedin facilitator Angus Pauley yesterday outlined, to more than 80 people, several youth-oriented programmes in the city, including some intended to encourage young people to develop entrepreneurial skills.
Youth panel participant Mitchell Porter-Thomas said the pandemic had highlighted the need for young people to further develop their skills and for more programmes to be tailored to meet their educational needs.
Council community adviser Becks New said yesterday’s "great" event was intended to help develop young people’s ideas, and was likely to be followed by another hui next year.
