Nelson Regional Population Strategy:

Economic Opportunities Ageing Presents to the Region


Ways to Address the Lack of Employment Opportunities for Young People

Like other developed countries, New Zealand’s population dynamics are changing and Nelson-Tasman is no exception. The effects of an ageing population are many and varied; this document is intended to address two key points:

  • what economic opportunities are presented by an ageing population in this region
  • ways to address the lack of employment opportunities for young people in this region

The intention is to highlight dynamics regarding older and younger populations in Nelson-Tasman, and to provide a summary of opportunities and key recommendations. This document is produced with the intention to provide objective advice to Council, and is not shaped by any particular membership group or predetermined goals.
