Kia ora and welcome to Katikati Taiao

Taiao” is the Maori word for the natural world and everything in it. Katikati Taiao’s vision is that the depredation of Katikati’s natural world has ceased; its communities are connected and vibrant, and happiness thrives.

Our community-led approach supports our communities and hapū to achieve their hopes and goals by working together, building on strengths, encouraging wide participation, developing local leaders, evaluating progress and celebrating achievements.

MORE ABOUT US
COMMUNITY LED DEVELOPMENT

Katikati Taiao has entered into a partnership with the Department of Internal Affairs (DIA), as part of the Community-led Development Programme (CLDP).  The intention of CLDP is to support and work with the community – allowing people to envisage the Katikati they would like to see.  By encouraging a collective approach, we hope to support the community to bring their dreams to fruition.

 “Community-led development strengthens the vitality of communities by activating and weaving the contribution of everyone connected to a place/whenua, and it happens when a community comes together to achieve a shared vision.”  sourced from Inspiring Communities

HEARTS AND MINDS
The Hearts and Minds of Katikati research project was conceived by Katikati Taiao and supported with funding from the Lotteries commission. The Hearts and Minds research aimed to provide an understanding of the social connections in Katikati, that is, how the various communities in Katikati live and work together. The reason why the Hearts and Minds research sought this understanding was the desire by Katikati Taiao to see strengthened social connections in Katikati so that all communities within Katikati could thrive. This research has been the catalyst for several new and exciting projects in Katikati.
