How does The Hive work?

Once young people have agreed this is an issue they want to engage with government on, we follow a five-step engagement process.

It’s all led by our 15 Hivers, and they are supported in their mahi by an Instagram community of 900+ young people, creative agency Curative, and the Ministry of Youth Development.


We turn dry policy into snackable, relevant content.


We invite young people to speak in safe places and effortless ways.


We turn all your diverse voices into one collective point of view.


We turn it all into something that will shift the hearts and minds of decision-makers.


We invite decision-makers to close the loop, proving to young people that your voices have been heard.
