Online generation bridge
Auckland City Libraries and the New Zealand Chinese Association Auckland Inc. have joined forces to develop the first New Zealand Chinese digital communities website, which will be launched at the Rising Dragons, Soaring Bananas International Conference, on July 18 at the University of Auckland Business School. The online community aims to create connections within the Chinese community and assist with bridging the gap between generations of Chinese New Zealanders. Users of the website can upload family history, photographs, videos and stories about life in New Zealand. “This is a landmark project for our Association and one which will ensure Chinese New Zealand stories are kept alive forever,” chairman of New Zealand Chinese Association Auckland Inc. Kai Luey said.
