Toitu te whenua, whatungarongaro te tangata. We may pass on, but the land will always remain.
The ‘Let’s Take Care’ project has been a huge learning experience for me. This began when I was asked to hold a regional workshop with other young people in Wellington to envision our ideal world and create a care code for the planet. I organised to hold this in the lounge at Gaura Yoga followed by a discounted Hare Krishna dinner for everyone. I invited members of the Onslow College Environment Group, and friends from Queen Margaret’s College and Victoria University I have made through the Regeneration network. We discussed what makes New Zealand’s identity, and brainstormed an ideal world then used these ideas to create a care code for the planet that is specific to New Zealand.
