The Asian community are activated, advocated and represented at community levels across play, active recreation and sport
ActivAsian was first established by Harbour Sport in 2009 with the initiative expanding to Sport Waitākere and Sport Auckland in 2018 and subsequently to CLM Community Sport in 2021. The initiative has identified four Strategic Pillars located within the Regional ActivAsian Strategy 2021-23:
|Build Capability||Increase Awareness|
|Increase Participation||Inclusion in Sport|
Our long-term outcomes are:
- Reduced inequality in the participation of Asian population in play, active recreation and sport
- ActivAsian is known as the delegate and representation for the Asian population
- The Asian community is strengthened and upskilled for a more cohesive and sustainable future
- The Asian community is represented and advocated in the Play, Active Recreation and Sport sector
The Regional ActivAsian initiative and its delivery partners are committed to focusing on:
|Health & Wellbeing||Tamariki & Rangatahi|
|Women & Girls||Sustainable & locally-led initiatives|
|Sector Diversity & Inclusion Development|
ActivAsian Resources Hub
The ActivAsian Resources Hub features all ActivAsian’s publications, including Insights, Toolkits and Engagement Models. It is designed for any organisation who wishes to engage with the Asian communities through play, active recreation and sport. The resources will help organisations to gain a better understanding of the Asian population as well as increasing cultural competency within the current structure.
Harbour Sport Youth Programme - Where Future Leaders Form
The Harbour Sport Youth Programme is an initiative dedicated to empowering and upskilling future leaders in a supportive environment, whilst fostering positive identity. The programme is designed to cultivate and create confidence, sense of belonging, growth, leadership, development and more.
ActivRecreAsian and Walk With Us are outdoor recreation initiatives which connects the Asian community on the North Shore with the great outdoors, encouraging safe participation and social connection.
