CORE Education


A Ministry of Education funded initiative, Kura ki Pakihi | Schools to Business is an initiative building on the momentum of the Ōtautahi Digital Equity Forum to create authentic and organic opportunities to connect students and businesses who will work together to tackle gnarly digital equity challenges.

Connecting the innovative spirit of youth and the business experience of their mentors, Kura ki Pakihi flips the script on traditional learning relationships. This is a chance to hear from the young creatives and entrepreneurs of Ōtautahi and be inspired by their vision for the future.

We invite you to come along and engage with the creativity and proposed solutions of the youth of Ōtautahi! The Kura ki Pakihi experience at the Smart City Christchurch Expo will include information and a panel event by the youth who are creating digital equity solutions for Ōtautahi businesses. Attendees will hear their stories, be given a taste of the creative sprint process they are using and be invited to tackle of digital inequity in Aotearoa.
