Interview with Pete Cowley - outgoing National Administrator

Sep 05 2016

Pete Cowley has been the administrator for UNA NZ for the last five years, and has contributed to UNA NZ for vastly more than that. His role consisted of responding to emails, facilitating numerous events, creating documents and collating valuable information. Highlights of his time at UNA NZ were the events on UN Day, Peace Day and Human Rights Day. Pete will be leaving us so that he is able to fully care for his flatemate suffering from dementia, and campaign on the right to voluntary euthanasia. Unfortunately, with this and many other organisations he’s involved in, he feels he does not have the time or energy that is deserving of the UNA NZ role.
