Nau mai, haere mai...
Join us at the intersection of climate change, culture, and community to explore how we, as indigenous communities, can tackle community-level challenges and contribute to global change.
 
We invite you to attend the inaugural 2024 Tribal Summit to explore our economic potential and how it must coincide with social and cultural well-being. 
 

He Kāhui Mano-

Tribal Summit

A three-day event for indigenous communities to reimagine and redefine our future through a community-led, kaupapa-driven circular economy.

Aim
Our aim is to provide the opportunity to better understand Circular Economy- the theory and the practice. We will offer a mix of presentations and think space to do a deeper dive into key areas of potential change in our homes, workplaces and community. 
 
Our aim is to provide participants with the opportunity to broadly redefine sustainability, resilience and innovation for a community-led circular future.
Over three days we invite you to learn, reflect, and wānanga with others, to consider:
  1. Can circularity align with our aspirations for cultural and social well-being and values as Māori?
  2. A means to an end... how does circularity stack up building a kaupapa-driven Tribal economy? 
  3. How do we unlock the economic potential of a Taiao-positive, circular economy?
  4. What are the pros/cons of a Circular Economy?
Who should attend?
We extend a warm welcome to those who share whakapapa to ngā Iwi o Taranaki, and to wider whanau and hapū networks around the motu to attend our Tribal Summit.

 

We encourage pakeke and rangatahi who are passionate about the interconnected kaupapa of revitalising Te Taiao, community-led change, indigenous entrepreneurship, systems thinking and Tribal economic development as essential components on our quest to reclaim our mana motuhake. 
We view the revitalisation of the mana and mauri of Te Taiao as the cornerstone of community-driven progress. This entails more than just our enduring responsibility as kaitiaki across generations; it also embodies the aspirations of our whānau and hapū, uniting us with our heritage, our present, and our future.
 
Join us to see how our values and worldview aligns to circularity and if it can provide your whanau, hapū and community with tools for change.
