Kāwanatanga ‘Future Search’ Panel - Waiheke participants

Online workshop and panel discussion by Alex Rogers, Andrew Jeffs, Matt von Sturmer, Pippa Coom and Lucy Tukua. February 2022 (36 mins + Q&A).

In February 2022, the Enabling kaitiakitanga and EBM project hosted an online workshop for four key Aotearoa New Zealand government agencies.

The project has partnered with target audiences from across the whole system, drawing on the Three Spheres of Influence framework, presented in the Report of Matike Mai Aotearoa – The Independent Working Group on Constitutional Transformation (2016).

Research partners are working to understand key barriers, identify potential opportunities, and co-develop tools that will better enable holistic care and use of our moana (ie Kaitiakitanga and EBM); contributing to the enhancement of the mauri and mana of our environment and ourselves.

The workshop was an opportunity for key agencies to consider a methodology for systems-focused action-planning, called Future Search.

As part of the workshop, a panel of participants who experienced the Waiheke Marine Project Future Search in 2020 shared their perspectives and experiences with the Kāwanatanga (New Zealand government agencies). Each panelist provided a brief kōrero, followed by a collective Q&A session.
