AgriTechNZ News: Celebrating Success

AgriTechNZ News


Celebrating the work of others in our sector is good for all of us. It’s an act of good citizenship that recognises both our individual and shared work in building a smart ecosystem. Ecosystem citizenship behaviour encourages collaborative approaches, collective action for the sector and indirect social exchanges (such as the behaviour of paying it forward and supporting the development of others in the community). We’ve had some opportunities to recognise the good works of others in the last month and look forward to further opportunities.
