Nigel Latta and John Camp­bell are team­ing up

Auckland City Harbour News - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE - STAFF RE­PORTER

Nigel Latta will team up with jour­nal­ist John Camp­bell for a show that ex­am­ines what New Zealand will look like in 20 years.

The pair will host live panel show What Next?, which ex­am­ines what New Zealan­ders want for the coun­try’s fu­ture, and whether we’re on track to achieve those goals.

The show prom­ises to use re­search from Univer­sity of Auck­land’s psy­chol­ogy depart­ment, as well as the re­sults of a soon-to-bere­leased sur­vey.

Latta and Camp­bell will be joined by a panel of Ki­wis who are pas­sion­ate about pre­par­ing for what’s ahead.

They in­clude so­cial en­trepreneur Derek Han­d­ley, McGuin­ness In­sti­tute chief ex­ec­u­tive Wendy McGuin­ness, in­dige­nous so­cial en­trepreneur Shay Wright, tech in­no­va­tor Frances Val­in­tine, and Tu Maia co­founder Sacha McMeek­ing.

The show will be broad­cast live on mul­ti­ple plat­forms over five con­sec­u­tive nights, and view­ers will be able to ask the hosts and pan­el­lists ques­tions and com­mu­ni­cate their views on­line.

The show marks Camp­bell’s re­turn to a ma­jor free-to-air tele­vi­sion net­work after his cur­rent af­fairs show, Camp­bell Live, was con­tro­ver­sially axed in 2015.

This time he’s work­ing for the com­pe­ti­tion, with What Next? set to air on TVNZ 1 and TVNZ’s web site.
