Auckland Languages Strategy

The Auckland Languages Strategy - Ngā Reo o Tāmaki  Makaurau aims to develop a shared agenda for a multilingual Auckland, aligning policy and practice to support, promote and foster all the city’s diverse languages and cultures. 

The document was developed by a cross-sector group representing a wide range of language interests in Auckland. The strategy was launched in November 2015, after several phases of consultation starting in 2012.

The strategy working group consulted with Māori about how the strategy should link with and support te reo Māori.  It was agreed that the strategy should align with and support a separate Te Reo Māori Strategy.

We are pleased to note that since that time, both national and regional strategies to support te reo Māori revitalisation have been developed by government and by Auckland Council, respectively.



How can you be involved?

The Auckland Languages Strategy Working Group continues to meet regularly to support and monitor actions towards the goals of the strategy. Please let us know if you would like to be involved in any of this work.

The group is also seeking endorsements for the strategy from organisations and individuals. If you or your organisation would like to endorse the plan, please email susan.warren@cometauckland.org.nz
