INVOLVE 2021 Reunion

There are some exciting things happening in the INVOLVE world that we wanted to tell you!

We know that some of you need a little more time to brainstorm what you might like to present at the conference. So we want to give you a bit more time to make sure you can send us all those great ideas! Please note that we are also really happy to receive applications that aren’t completely fleshed out at this stage – just give us as much information as you can, so we can see how it might fit with the rest of the programme.

Extended application to present at INVOLVE:   Now closing 5pm Sunday 28th February

Planning in Covid times

We know that in our current climate, it is difficult to know what the rest of the year looks like. The INVOLVE Team is committed to making the conference as accessible as possible. Whilst our desire is to meet kanohi ki te kanohi in August, the team is also creating contingency plans so that we can pivot to an online conference last minute. The INVOLVE Team is committed to the health, safety and wellbeing of all attendees, our sector, and young people; we will be guided by the advice of health professionals and the Government.

If the decision is made to pivot to a digital conference, everyone with an In-Person conference ticket will be automatically switched to an Online ticket and refunded the difference.
We are also working on pulling together advice, health and safety plans, and support options to help you as you prepare for INVOLVE. Keep checking our website for all this!

Connect with us!

Apart from these emails, which we will send you for big announcements in the lead up to INVOLVE, there are other grat ways to connect with us.
Our Facebook event is an awesome way to let others know about the conference, and to start connecting with others who will be attending.
We also have a brand new Instagram account which will be a permanent account across all INVOLVEs. Here we are building a space to keep you connected to the kaupapa from year to year, and where you can find out about ways to be part of future conferences.

It’s only six months til August, and we can’t wait to gather with you In-Person and Online for INVOLVE! If you have any questions, please check out the website or send us an email:
