Twenty-eight young New Zealanders attended a workshop in December 2013 to stress test Treasury’s Living Standards Framework using three case studies.

LivingStandardsNZ was a collaboration between the New Zealand Treasury and the McGuinness Institute that aimed to encourage informed discussion on policy around living standards in New Zealand. There were three significant outputs from the workshop: the 2013 Youth Living Standards Framework for New Zealand, the ‘Living Legend‘ skit and the participants’ presentation of their findings to Treasury officials and the public on Thursday 5 December 2013.

Below you can watch the final presentation and the ‘Living Legend’ skit, which the participants designed to communicate the Living Standards Framework to everyday New Zealanders.
