Hello and welcome!

This month we are excited to share with you our 10-year impact report.

Minnie Baragwanath founded the Be. Institute in 2011, with a vision to create an organisation and an approach to social change that would improve the lives of the 25% of New Zealanders with access needs.

Leadership Development for Access Citizens
Accessibility Improvements for Business

Celebrating Auckland Unlimited’s approach to improving Accessibility at the 36th America’s Cup

We hope you’ve all been enjoying the America’s Cup events as much as much as we have!
This month we are celebrating Auckland Unlimited’s innovative approach to ensuring that the host city of the 36th America’s Cup was as accessible as possible to all visitors and residents alike. Read this blog on our website to learn how they did it.

Racing between the cup defenders Team New Zealand and winners of the PRADA cup Luna Rossa will begin this Wednesday 10th March.

Sadly the Race Village activations and big screen will not be operating this week with Auckland at Alert Level 2 (although stores, bars and restaurants remain open under Level 2 guidelines).

We’ve put together this summary of accessibility highlights to make sure racegoers with access needs get the most from the events.

Find out more over on our blog.

We hope you found our 10-year impact report interesting, we’d love to know your thoughts. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch. Stay safe and enjoy the summer!
