New board graph­ics

Auckland City Harbour News - - WS -

A set of in­no­va­tive ‘in­fo­graphic’ re­sources have been cre­ated for each of Auck­land’s 21 lo­cal boards. From Al­bert-Eden to Whau, each board has its own easyto-read snap­shot giv­ing es­sen­tial in­for­ma­tion and data spe­cific to the area. De­vel­oped by COMET Auck­land, the brochures in­clude in­for­ma­tion such as me­dian in­come, eth­nic­ity and lo­cal iwi, ed­u­ca­tion ser­vices and lo­cal skills and in­dus­tries. Pro­ject leader Ali­son Sut­ton says ex­ist­ing data is too com­plex to be ef­fec­tive in lo­cal de­ci­sion mak­ing. ‘‘Ed­u­ca­tion, learn­ing and skills are key is­sues in our com­mu­ni­ties, so it’s im­por­tant to have spe­cific in­for­ma­tion at the lo­cal level to en­able good de­ci­sions to be made about how to im­prove out­comes,’’ she says. She is en­cour­ag­ing Auck­lan­ders to use the snap­shots as a ref­er­ence tool for meet­ings, par­ent-teacher in­ter­views and com­mu­nity dis­cus­sions. Go to cometauck­land.org.nz to ac­cess the snap­shots.
