In the second episode of our week-long series exploring the possibilities, challenges, and potential of social enterprise in New Zealand, our panel asks: is consumerism the new politics?

Watch the rest of the series here.

Consumers making ethical choices are changing the market and the way companies operate in it. This has become a method of choice used by many to help make the world a better place. But what are the implications for other forms of political action? 

This is the second part of a conversation chaired recently by Simon Wilson, which brought together some of New Zealand’s most prominent and active voices in the area: Alex Hannant from social enterprise enabling company Ākina Foundation, Lisa King of buy-one-give-one food company Eat My Lunch, Michelle Sharp of toymakers Kilmarnock Enterprises, and Nick Wells of Māori legal practice Te Waka Ture, a division of Chapman Tripp.

The content is brought to you by Kiwibank in association with the Social Enterprise World Forum.

The Social Enterprise World Forum is on September 27-29th in Christchurch.
