Environmental Stewardship

We're striving to empower New Zealanders to demand and enact environmental stewardship and kaitiakitanga (guardianship).


Our vision is that:

  • The market and non-market values of New Zealand’s biological heritage will be quantified to inform inter-generational policy and governance decisions across social, cultural and institutional frameworks.
  • Social partnerships with motivated and enabled citizens, knowledge holders and decision-makers will be established to maximise adoption and scale out of new tools, technologies and solutions.
  • People will be enabled to make decisions and act to benefit our biological heritage.
  • The weight of public opinion will ensure that Government recognises the value of our biological heritage and adjusts policy and resource decisions to ensure that the decline is reversed.
