Buller Youth ‘Fly’ at Festival for the Future

Buller REAP took 8 Youth and 3 youth workers from the Buller District, who were ready and eager to attend Festival for the Future 2019. The Festival is run by Inspiring Stories Trust, which was founded by Granity boy – Guy Ryan with the bold vision to see young New Zealanders unleash their potential to change the world. FFF2019 brought together over 1200+ people from around New Zealand and the Asia-Pacific for an action-packed weekend  of inspiring speakers, future-focused panels, hands-on workshops and a marketplace for great ideas.

“The sheer amount of people who are willing to change the world for the better is immense. It’s amazing to be able to meet so many other keen young like-minded people”.
