GIFT Year Five

Drawing together the impact of a five-year initiative:

To test, scale and create new systems to restore the mauri of Tīkapa Moana/Te Moananui-ā-Toi (the Hauraki Gulf)

Year Five was the final year of granting under the GIFT kaupapa. As we transition from GIFT to Whakahou Taiao | Regenerative Environment, this is an important moment to observe – a chance to reflect on the past and look to the future.

In this short video, we open our report with a Karakia Tīmatanga, written and gifted to this mahi by Foundation North’s Kaumātua Kevin Prime.

This is followed by an online kōrero between Kevin Prime and the Foundation’s Chair, Walter Wells. We are privileged and grateful to them for sharing their whakaaro around what needs to be retained and remembered from this mahi, what is important that still needs to be done and what is needed for Tīkapa Moana and her people to thrive over generations to come.
