Elections

Candidate Forums

HYC has extensive experience running youth-accessible, moderated, community election forums in local and general elections — stretching back to our first candidates meeting in the 2014 general election. More recently, we've run candidate forums in the 2020 general election, 2019 local elections and 2018 Howick ward by-election. We also collaborated with other youth councils in Auckland to produce Recruit Your Mayor in the 2019 mayoralty elections.

Youth Consultation

Consulting youth on aspects of the most significant public transport project happening in East Auckland. Our consultation covered a topic where youth voice was lacking despite public transport changes disproportionately affecting young people. We presented our consultation findings to Auckland Council's Planning Committee and the Auckland Youth Advisory Panel.

East Auckland Youth Film Festival

Young aspiring filmmakers were given the chance to submit films they had created for judging by professionals. These films were then showcased in a public viewing at a real cinema, which was enjoyed by the public, and represented an amazing opportunity for young filmmakers. Supported by Monterey Cinemas in Howick, and attracting over 100 audience members in 2019.
