Taranaki is an awesome place to live, work, play and create. As our economy and businesses shift towards a low-emissions future, we need to make sure we keep all that’s great about Taranaki while planning for that to be shared by everyone who lives here. The Taranaki 2050 Roadmap has been co-designed by the region, for the region. It considers not just how our economy will change, but all aspects of our lives, and provides the opportunity to plan for inclusive growth.

This video sums up the Roadmap process well…



Creating the draft Roadmap

From February - April, 2019 the people of Taranaki created the content of the Roadmap through a co-design process. Over 700 people took part in 23 workshops around the region on defined transition topics, as well as 5 community workshops. 11 of the region's high schools sent students to attend a specialised youth workshop and we gathered the voices of the region's young people through a creative challenge. Over 360 people completed surveys online or at events and all the voices gathered created the Taranaki 2050 Roadmap. Read more...

Consultation on the draft Roadmap

Following the launch of the draft Roadmap in May 2019, public consultation included visits to more than 40 locations with over 1,000 people. Feedback was via an online interactive tool, via emial or in writing to Venture Taranaki. Read more...

Development of transition pathway action plans

Following the publication of the Roadmap, action plans have been co-designed for each of the transition pathways in the Roadmap. They are available here. Based on the co-design themes and the emerging opportunities identified in the Taranaki 2050 Roadmap, the methodology took the divergent thinking and opportunities identified in the Roadmap and channelled them into a more convergent set of tangible actions and outputs to define the short-term actions and medium-term strategy needed to achieve the region’s long-term vision for 2050.

Next steps

With the finalisation of the transitional pathway action plans, the focus of the Taranaki 2050 programme shifts into implementation. The Taranaki 2050 will work with the seven pou to begin to take actions forward and monitor progress.
