Climate adaptation through the eyes and ears of our mokopuna

Webinar video taken 23 April 2024

Presenters: Te Morehu Whenua (Rawiri Tinirau, Manaaki Hogg, Inglis Tinirau-Williams, Ata Rangi Pehi and Tumanako Pehi), and Toi Rito Toi Rangatira rangatahi climate leadership group.

Rangatahi are pivotal agents of change in climate adaptation. Their unique perspectives, innovative ideas, and energetic advocacy are driving significant shifts in both policy and grassroots initiatives aimed at creating sustainable futures. In this webinar from the Deep South National Science Challenge, we hear about the research undertaken by Te Morehu Whenua and the ways in which they have brought forward the voices of rangatahi and their powerful intergenerational approach.

We also get insight into the Toi Rito Toi Rangatira rangatahi climate leadership programme and hear from rangatahi themselves about their experiences and aspirations for climate adaptation in their communities. Drawing on their cultural narratives, values, and the power of collective action, we learn how rangatahi are raising awareness about the impacts of climate change and actively contributing to the development of climate solutions that are connected to their communities and whānau. We are excited to hear from the research team members, directly from rangatahi themselves, in the first of our webinar series Te Kawa o Te Ora.

Hosted by Naomi Simmons and Peta-Maria Tunui, Deep South National Science Challenge.
