Welcome to our Te Arawa Vision Journey

Te Arawa has been working to identify what our future can be. After more than a year of wānanga and discussions, Te Arawa has designed a Vision document to help us navigate a brighter and prosperous future.

The Te Arawa 2050 Vision is an initiative driven by Te Arawa, who wanted a new and united, Te Arawa Vision. A collective made up of decision-makers representing 16 Te Arawa mandated organisations came together to form a working group, Te Arawa 2050 Rōpū Whakahaere, which formed in February 2019, to develop a future plan.

Te Arawa 2050 started with a blank canvas, to find out how Te Arawa envisages its future. A range of activities were undertaken to collate and analyse the moemoeā and aspirations of Te Arawa whānui. 

Te Arawa 2050 Rōpū Whakahaere, which was formed in February 2019, thanks everyone who took the time to give their feedback to lay the foundations of the Te Arawa 2050 Vision. 

A formal launch for the Te Arawa Vision document was held at Te Puia, Hemo Road in Rotorua on Sunday, 19 July 2020.

It was live-streamed by Te Arawa FM. You can watch the coverage by clicking the button below.
