We’re delighted to announce that registration fees for GPS 2020 are heavily subsidised. We worked really hard to make sure this knowledge exchange is low cost for our communities and stakeholders, and is as accessible as possible.

It is our hope that GPS 2020 will:

  • Bring people together from various sectors, providing a platform for integrating approaches for collective solutions to address some of the issues our young people and families face.
  • Validate Pasifika solutions that meet the needs of Pasifika communities.
  • Facilitate relationships across boundaries, between communities, providers, government.
  • Promote technology as an innovative medium to share knowledge.
  • Provide a platform for communities to update on progress “what have we achieved for our Pasifika young people and families since 2016”.

We look forward to connecting with you at GPS 2020.
