Researchers, communities, regional councils and land owners need to work together as guardians of our land and water.
Each of Our Land and Water’s research projects involves communities, through workshops, meetings, presentations, surveys, communication or education. Here is where we take it further.
To achieve our goals, we need to grow public understanding of land and water science and the principles of kaitiakitanga. We must also build capability for future science and industry leadership.
Explore the initiatives below, and together we can accelerate science to improve our land and water for the next generation.
This is a one-year programme to develop the capability of influential, innovative future leaders
Our Land and Water is a primary sponsor of the Pūhoro STEM Academy, a mentoring and support programme for Māori high school students
