Everything is Connected – Whanaungatanga

Our focus for 2016 is Everything is Connected – Whanaungatanga. 

“He taura whiri kotahi mai anō te kopunga tae noa ki te pu au.”

From the source to the mouth of the sea all things are joined together as one.

Acting sustainably is no longer a choice: Humans have changed ecosystems more rapidly and extensively over the last 50 years than any other period in history. This includes high demand for food, fresh water and fuel in the quest for human wellbeing and economic development. “Everything is connected” has the potential to explore connections between and within natural ecosystems. This includes the relationships between natural ecosystems and people. As well as the development of relationships- both local and global, between people, groups, organisations, and communities. It provides opportunities to consider both spiritual and scientific explanations of our world and traditional and contemporary approaches.

‘When we tug at a single thing in nature, we find it is connected to

everything else’.

– John Muir
