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

Christopher Le Breton's picture

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 ? Or will it be the first to chart a new way forward, drawing on the best of the modern world and its indigenous traditions?



  • “The response to the crisis we are living through needs to be

    urgent, appropriate, and driven by possibilities. It must be rooted in compassion and bringing us together. Active Hope does that.” (Rob Hopkins, Transition Network, UK)

  • “Active Hope may be seen in the 22nd Century as the most important work of the 21st .” (Bill Plotkin, Soulcraft, USA)

  • “Active Hope helps us to gaze unflinchingly at the horrors that confront us, to honour the pain we feel for our world & to allow the truth to strengthen rather than paralyse us. If you feel overwhelmed by the magnitude of the task ahead, if you want to find the part that only you can play in the ‘great work,’ use Active Hope’.” John Seed (Australia)


    How do we change ourselves so that we are strong enough to fully contribute to the shift? Active Hope (does this) beautifully, guiding us on a path of gratitude, grief, interconnection, & ultimately transformation. (Naomi Klein, author of The Shock Doctrine)

    Come together with others who care about what’s happening here; the mining of our national parks, sea-bed drilling, polluted rivers, rising inequality, ill-health & poverty & reduced freedom.

  • Explore and consider:
    • The state of our world and what got us here;
    • Creative exercises to strengthen ourselves as we

    deal with our challenges;
    • Deep connection and surprising solutions;
    • What’s your role in creating this new future? and saving the soul of New Zealand ?
