The Trust was a foundation participant and contributor to the “Waikato Wellbeing Project”. A project that is underpinned by the “United Nations Sustainable Development Goals”. This project is the first of its kind in New Zealand and involves collaboration with regional iwi, business, industry groups, central and local government, tertiary education providers, economic development agencies, community organisations and citizens working in partnership across the Waikato region.
The ten wellbeing targets are the region’s first set of wellbeing targets to end poverty, fight inequality and act on climate change. The targets are based on the 17, United National Sustainable Development Goals, but have been adapted to meet the unique challenges facing the Waikato region. The Braemar Charitable Trust is proud to be an active participant and influencer in this very important project with a focus on promoting and achieving Goal 3: Good Health and Wellbeing.
