New Zealand Cultural Sustainability

New Zealand
Cultural Sustainability

  • New Zealand is one of the only countries in the world to recognise cultural sustainability as a key aspect of social sustainability.

 

  • This ensures that the Principles of the Treaty of Waitangi (Te Tiriti o Waitangi) are upheld within the process of decision making.

 

  • Māori principles can help us deepen our appreciation of the environment, sound social structures and a connective view of sustainability.

 

  • Traditional Maori World views of stewardship of our resources (kaitiakitanga) provides a sustainable road-map for the future
