Ki uta ki tai: from its ridge lines to its shores, Te Manukanuka o Hoturoa, the Manukau Harbour is on a journey of restoring its life force. In 2016 this Symposium welcomed Mana Whenua, government, Auckland Council elected members, scientists, community groups and individuals, to join in a conversation about the impacts and ways forward the journey to achieving wellbeing for this important taonga. On 19 May 2017, we will resume the conversation about New Zealand’s second largest harbour, the visions for its restoration, and our collective understanding of current and future priorities.

Featuring the Mauri o te Moana Awards for work undertaken to restore the harbour’s mauri-life force.
