Wakatū Incorporation has teamed up with the Nelson-Tasman Regional Development Agency and its council partners to develop an intergenerational growth strategy for the region, Te Tauihu 2077.

Chair Paul Morgan says 2077 will be the 100th anniversary of Wakatū and has been chosen as a horizon to reflect the importance of long-term thinking and commitment to deliver inter-generational benefits.

The initiative has secured $400,000 from the Provincial Growth Fund for the next nine months.

The steering committee includes three mayors, representatives from Iwi, the Nelson-Tasman and Marlborough Chambers of Commerce, the Nelson-Marlborough Institute of Technology, and representatives from regional businesses.

Mr Morgan says the project team will be seeking peoples’ views on five focus areas including whānau or people, taiao or environment, pūtea or economy, hihiko or science and technology, and papa whenua, the enabling infrastructure.

Wakatū is owned by 4,000 Māori families who descend from the traditional land owners of Nelson, Motueka and Golden Bay.

'Te Honongona' Urban Māori Stories
ODT Cartoon outrage misplaced
We should collectively be righteously appalled at the tone deaf ODT cartoon that made light of the terrible measles epidemic that has killed over 50 children in Samoa. It was an ugly 'joke' that shouted white privilege, but calls to boycott the ODT, sack the cartoonist and the enormous social media wave of fury seem to me to be grotesquely misplaced.
A Collins' Guide to Cultural Colour Blindness
Dr Rawiri Taonui: Utilising ‘white’ as a metaphor for ‘a person or woman of colour’ conveys connotations of white superiority.
If we legalise Cannabis, Maori must be given a leading role in industry to influence it
Martyn 'Bomber'Bradbury: If we are going to legalise cannabis, then Māori must be given a leading role in the newly established legal industry.
