Wānanga Waimāori 2023

Mountains to Sea Wellington and Te Rūnanga o Toa Rangatira warmly invite you to the Wānanga Waimāori 2023!

This is a full-day event of talks, workshops, and field trips for any community group, individual, or organization who shares a commitment to creating a positive impact for Wellington’s waterways. This is a day for enabling kōrero, sharing knowledge, and weaving connections between the wider freshwater focused communities of Te Upoko o Te Ika Māui. You’ll have the opportunity to share your own experiences, and learn from others to develop new strategies and initiatives for freshwater restoration.

The morning will be held at the beautiful Takapūwāhia Marae. Following a Pōwhiri you’ll hear from a range of speakers, including experts, mana whenua representatives, and community leaders. We have an exciting collection of topics to share with you in the lead up to the day! There will also be plenty of opportunity to mix around, share your own stories, and gain insights from others. After lunch, we’ll head out in nature, with field based interactive workshops and tours.

This event is organized in partnership with Te Rūnanga o Toa Rangatira and Greater Wellington, and is a part of Restoration Week 2023. Morning tea and lunch will be provided for everyone. This wānanga is free to attend, but a koha is appreciated.

This event is for community groups, individuals, organizations, and those who share a passion for making a difference for our waterways. While we would love to host you all, due to the limited space available we do ask that a limit of three people per organization attend. Thank you for your understanding.
