GOVIS 2019 - Kaitiakitanga-ā-Matihiko | Digital Stewardship

Thursday June 6 - Friday June 7, 2019
Shed 6, Queens Wharf, Wellington

In the public sector, we are the kaitiaki of our land, environment, resources and the people of Aotearoa New Zealand. We are here to protect and support them. That means that as guardians, we must think, plan, and manage with the future interests of all New Zealanders at heart.


Digital stewardship or Kaitiakitanga-ā-Matihiko is about identifying our future digital challenges, to extend digital inclusion, to build skilled, resilient and trusted teams and technologies, and to ensure the security and wellbeing of Aotearoa.  

Call for Presentations Now Open!

The call for presentations for GOVIS 2019 is now open. We invite you to contribute to GOVIS 2019 - Kaitiakitanga-ā-Matihiko | Digital Stewardship, sharing your insights, inspiring case studies, and best practices by presenting at next year’s conference.

We are inviting speakers to share their experiences and kōrero, to help others learn how we can successfully contribute to strengthening Aotearoa New Zealand’s Kaitiakitanga-ā-Matihiko | Digital Stewardship role.

  • Supporting and extending digital equity across the government ecosystem
  • Governing data access and opportunities to build new relationships
