There is a Māori proverb well known in Aotearoa New Zealand – he waka eke noa – which can be translated to mean ‘we’re all in the same boat’, or ‘we’re all in this together’. The challenges of climate change, biodiversity loss and food security pose a huge threat to human wellbeing, with the potential to reverse the global progress we have made towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals by increasing poverty and inequality.
Cawthron Institute is committed to developing solutions that support thriving people and communities through genuine partnership. The values of equity, justice, and manaakitanga (Māori principle of respect, care and generosity toward others) guide our approach to this work.
