WebsiteGrowing Up in New Zealand


Today’s children – the teenagers, adults and leaders of tomorrow - are growing up in social, cultural, economic and technology environments virtually unknown to earlier generations. They are heading along pathways that many of us cannot yet imagine.

Growing Up in New Zealand captures the individual and collective stories of children and families living in 21st century New Zealand.

Together, these provide a rich source of population-relevant evidence to help researchers, policy makers and support agencies understand what will “make a difference” in the lives of today's children, their families and communities.

  • What do we know so far?
  • How can we use this information to discover what works to change lives now and in the future?

The recently-released report “Now We Are Four” describes the cohort children over the course of their preschool years. Meanwhile the eight-year data collection has just begun.

The Growing Up in New Zealand team will introduce this new generation of Kiwi kids and some of the external partnership projects based on this precious resource.

Please book for this free event

Note: Registration and refreshments available from 10am. Seminar starts at 10.30am.

Car parking available onsite (charge applies)

Growing Up in New Zealand is also hosting a workshop for current and future users of our external data sets at the same venue on 12 September 2017 1.30-3.30pm. More details and registration

Growing Up in New Zealand is led by a multidisciplinary team at the University of Auckland. The contract for the core government funding for the study is being managed by Superu.
