This month we lead with two stories from the Land of the Long White Cloud. Roz O’Shea sees in New Zealand’s Health Education (“Finding hauora”), a holistic model for promoting wellbeing, while Keryn West’s exuberant piece about collaborative art (“What we love to do”) shows just what can be achieved with the right “Big Idea” , enthusiasm and sheer hard work!
