There is already significant kaitiakitanga and action being undertaken by iwi / hapu, communities and agencies in Northland. We aim to add value and additional support.

To achieve our mission, we will:

  • Develop shared goals for Northland’s environment and people
  • Work in partnership to collaborate, connect, add value, enable and empower communities to deliver priority projects
  • Recognise that the land sustains us, and that people and nature are intertwined. The value of nature to people – economically, socially and culturally – will underpin all our work
  • Work where the environment needs a hand – and harness local passion
  • Build capacity for communities to lead and carry out their own work
  • Add and build resources – be a source of practical, strategic and financial support – and attract others to invest in Northland
  • Work towards a community-owned, financially sustainable, 50-year programme
