Hamish Keown

Ara Taiohi Role: Project Manager for KnowPYD

Youth Participation, Advocacy, Food fanatic, Strategic, Big picture thinker.

I got involved in the Youth Development Sector as I was keen to engage in the rebuild of Ōtautahi/ Christchurch following the Earthquakes. I was approached to join the Christchurch Youth Council and subsequently got super involved, and worked hard make it its own Organisation, with autonomy from any agency. After studying and working I came back to the sector to lead the Strengthening the Youth Sector Project in 2016, and have been loving it ever since.
