We’re delighted to announce that at long last we have been able to appoint a new Public Lead for Creative Commons Aotearoa New Zealand: Mandy Henk. Nau mai!

Mandy is a librarian, writer, and advocate for a healthy and vibrant Commons. Since 2004, Mandy has worked with library users to help them understand their rights, both as users and creators. She was named a 2012 Library Journal Mover and Shaker for her work as a founding member of the People’s Library at Occupy Wall Street, and is the author of Economy, Ecology, Equity: The Path to a Carbon Neutral Library (ALAEditions 2014). Mandy brings both deep experience and passion for her work. She will be taking up her new role just after Easter.

Welcome Mandy!

I second that @keithabooth . Fantastic to welcome a fellow Occupier and climate change activist into the CCANZ community!
