ABOUT THE WINDER FOUNDATION
FOUNDERS AND TRUSTEES
THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES
The Winder Foundation is a charitable trust registered with the New Zealand Charities Commission (CC32346). We work under the stewardship of a Board of Trustees and a global Support Council. We are committed to working in partnership with young people and families to bring about resilience, strength and harmony in our homes, schools, communities and nations.Each of us comes to the Foundation with common values, principles and multiple talents that coalesce around questions that can be addressed only from the perspective of several disciplines. Problems of social injustice, ecological sustainability, peace and the impact of the global crisis on young people and families in local communities require scientific as well as political, economic, cultural and ethical understanding. It is our intention to fully explore the relationships among these issues with the young people and families who partner with us in this work. Collectively, we can bring forward new solutions.
Winder Foundation founders are long-time educators, social entrepreneurs and international advisers. They have been engaged in creative learning and leadership initiatives for many years, and have inspired education and business communities alike. They were first to bring a year-long, whole-boy, learning-leadership program for young men in New Zealand schools. Their creative vision encompasses personal, organizational and global transformation through pioneering, interdisciplinary and multicultural approaches to sustainable development and social change.
