Health and Wellness is defined differently, unique to their specific worldview and values. The Global village Hub will be exploring the many different perceptions, traditions and approaches to ‘wellbeing’.


Josh Phillips is the General Manager of ‘Vision West’ a Community organisation based in Auckland which provides a range of social services for families across Auckland. Josh has a vast body of cultural and traditional knowledge which has been passed down generations and he has been also able to operate effectively in two worlds, integrating the Maori worldview and the Western world view to conceptualise different approaches and ways of working with the community he serves.
