Programme:

Why Attend? Learn how to be part of the future now. Para Kore or Zero Waste is a philosophy, a programme and a Māori organisation with a kaupapa based on whakapapa to Papatūānuku. Each year we hold our hui ā tau, our annual conference. This year it is being held in Kawhia in the Waikato. Guest speakers will cover topics on going plastic-free, whakapapa to natural resources, how our tūpuna lived 'para kore'; workshops will include composting, waste checks and visits. There will be a tour of Maketu Marae looking at the history and how they're implementing Para Kore in their community.

Join us now and together through education we'll learn how to create less waste, more jobs, more resources and a healthier world for us all! Our hui is open to everyone: individuals, whānau (childcare will be provided), marae, hapū, iwi, councils, and all peoples - Māori and non-Māori. Nau mai, haere mai!

SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

Sponsorship of the Para Kore Hui ā-Tau is critical to the success of our hui.

By being a sponsor you send a clear message that you stand for a future where we ngāi tātau return to and create innovative and creative para kore, zero waste processes which create no waste and no pollution, enabling us to respect our whakapapa and whānaungatanga to Ranginui, Papatūānuku me ō rāua uri katoa.

Our kai for our hui ā-tau will be sourced as much as possible locally, providing income to local farmers and food growers. It’s important to us that as much as possible we know the whakapapa of our kai for our hui.

By being a sponsor not only will you have the opportunity to profile your organisation and raise awareness about what you do, you support will show your alignment with the kaupapa of Para Kore which relates to well being, and creation of a future where Māoridom strengthens cultural practises of mahinga kai, gardening, healthy kai and whole foods thereby caring for Rangi and Papa which goes hand in hand with care of self.

Ko Rangi, ko Papa
Ko koe, ko au
