Hokinga Whakaaro - Online Leadership Workshop
Murihiku Regeneration’s leadership programme (Rangatiratanga, Hokinga Whakaaro) is intended to enhance the network of leadership capability across the takiwā.
This will support intergenerational succession and effectiveness of Papatipu Rūnanga, government and non-government, community, and commercial organisations. The title captures the importance of looking back and reflecting when leading.

On Wednesday 24 and Thursday 25 November 2021, Murihiku Regeneration hosted its inaugural Science and Innovation Wānanga.
The people of Murihiku have a once in a lifetime opportunity to leverage the closure of Tiwai Smelter and the greening of economic activity more generally, into a regenerative kaupapa. A kaupapa of sustainability and quality of life in a thriving, healthy environment for generations to come. The aim of the wananga was to develop a shared understanding with key stakeholders, of both the context of the Tiwai Aluminium Smelter closure and the opportunities that a post-smelter environment is presenting. See About Us to find out more about the Murihiku Regeneration collective and kaupapa and view the foundation document (PDF, 682.77 kB) from September 2020.
Science and innovation will be the vital drivers of our future success. We know this because science and innovation are pivotal to responding to the challenges we face, including:
- Tiwai Smelter closure, the loss of jobs and the remediation of the site.
- Climate change, environmental decline and sustainability.
- Ensuring we can utilise green energy innovations to decarbonise human activity.
- The pace of technological change and its impact on the future of work.
