“The last few years have taught us to be more resilient, but also highlighted how important it is to look after our holistic wellbeing, physical and mental health.

The latest Project Ikuna course, Future Ready: Wellbeing, developed by Upskills aims to equip employed Pacific people with skills to understand and improve their personal wellbeing, whether at home or work. It taps into the role that a balanced lifestyle, nutrition and movement play in our everyday lives and creates pathways for Pacific people to enhance their overall wellbeing.”

Matt Padernal, Project Manager, Project Ikuna, Tātaki Auckland Unlimited
