Chlöe Swarbrick - ‘For the people, by the people’

 Registration is closed for this event
Please note this is NOT our usual venue.

This election campaign needs to push us further into the sort of society we want to be. Honour the values we want to live by. Grow the leadership that makes an impact. One term of an extraordinary coalition is not enough. Any return to inertia and privileged would be abhorrent. Chlöe Swarbrick is a central and indeed critical figure in the world we want. We are pleased to have her speak on the community we can build from here.

Swarbrick was born in Auckland in 1994. She didn't want to be a lawyer but wanted to know "how our system runs. In 2012, Swarbrick opened her first business, a New Zealand-made fashion label called The Lucid Collective, with Alex Bartley Catt. She began working in the newsroom at the student radio station 95bFM as a news writer and news reader, before becoming a producer and eventually host of The Wire. In late 2015. The project opened a pop-up store in St Kevin's Arcade on Karangahape Road.[11] Swarbrick won a New Zealander of the Year Local Hero Award.[12] Swarbrick ran in the 2016 Auckland mayoral election, coming in third place, with 29,098 votes. She entered the mayoral race as a form of protest after interviewing “uninspiring” potential candidates while working as a journalist for bFM and discovering that only 34% of the electorate had voted at the previous mayoral election.[20] Swarbrick gained significant media attention largely due to her age. After losing the mayoral race, she joined the Green Party.[21]

And then she gave us “Ok Boomer!”
