Help Indigenous Youth Of Te Ara Whatu Attend The Un Climate Talks
Project 2019-10-03 21:47:16 +1300
In 2017 the first ever delegation to be organised, led and made up of indigenous youth attended the UN Climate Talks. Last year we returned to the mahi once more, helping to bring to life the first climate solutions platform co-governed by indigneous peoples and governments. This year we are continuing with this important kaupapa, travelling to Santiago, Chile for the 25th UN Climate Talks. The biggest barrier to ensuring indigenous youth are present in this talanoa/kōrero is money. Can you chip in to help us get there?
These are places to which we belong - the legacies handed down by our ancestors.
These are the places from which our mana is derived. This is our agency and our power, but mostly our responsibility as tangata whenua to pursue self- determination for those past, present and those still to come. Our knowledge systems have been created and maintained via thousands of years of co-existence with the environment. As temperatures change, and bio-diversity declines the reference points within our knowledge systems are changing. As sea levels rise, our fonua and the very atea of our marae are threatened with flood waters and we are called to stand in their protection.
Disrupt - Learn - Share - Connect
These are the intentions at the forefront of our mind. We have the blueprints for the future in our DNA. We have ancient stories that hold global solutions. We must use them now to protect those things which shape our identity, that make us who we are. Help us to achieve this mahi.
Who is Te Ara Whatu?
Te Ara Whatu is made up of rangatahi Māori and Pasifika from around Aotearoa. We connect to a variety of Māori and Pasifika communities and walk many paths, from storytelling to environmental planning, from campaigning to policy, and all things tangata whenua.
Our mahi is founded in enabling rangatahi Māori and Pasifika to generate the skills and relationships needed to take on the intersectional challenges that we have inherited, and will be facing in the future. Our vision is for rangatahi to lead the way in creating resilient, adaptable and self-determined indigenous communities - generating our own solutions based in our cultural knowledge and ways of living.

Where will the money go?
All fund raised go towards covering the cost of our flights, accommodation, travel insurance and local travel costs. Any extra will go towards making sure we have good kai to nourish us while we mahi. Total costs are approximately $4500 per team member.
