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.

Katikati Taiao
Community-Led Development takes all kinds!This whakatauki has various meanings. It recalls the birds in the forest that make up the chorus of birdsong. Even though each bird call is different, they harmonise, they sometimes clash, they call to each other to warn of danger, and also to mate; they crow to wake us up and coo to put us to sleep.Secondly, just as it is relevant to birdlife, it relates to our human lives. It is an acknowledgement of our differences and our unique gifts that contribute to the world around us.Click here to see our CLD principles: inspiringcommunities.org.nz/ic_resource/nga-matapono-cld-principles/ ...
