What will it take to catalyse and inspire Aotearoa NZ becominug a Transition Country? Where does Kaitiakitanga fit in?

Modern histories tell us that Aotearoa New Zealand was the last landmass to be settled by humans. Will it be the first that humans have to evacuate given the pollution to its rivers, lakes, and land ?
