Massey University alumni, staff, students, and friends are invited to come together for an evening of networking, followed by a presentation by Distinguished Profressor Paul Spoonley. As New Zealand ends the second decade of the 21st century, there are some interesting social and demographic trends that are changing the nature and structure of the family. Some of these are economic – the perceived and actual cost of children, the competition between earning an income and child birth/rearing, young adult debt and the cost of housing – while others are long term demographic trends – declining fertility, delayed first birth, fewer children. What is happening and why? Are our policies appropriate to what is happening in the 21st century?
