Tauiwi Prevention Project Hui

Imagining the Solution 2013

On 09/10 September our Tauiwi Caucus hosted Imagining the Solution 2013, the second annual national sexual violence prevention hui, following on from the Tauiwi and Bicultural stream from Whai ki te Ara Tika – Imagining the Solution in 2012.

The focus of Imagining the Solution 2013 was the primary prevention of sexual violence, or stopping sexual violence before it takes place. It showcased primary prevention strategies, activities and programmes that help build communities free of sexual violence.
