National Māori Housing Conference 2016 - A great success

National Māori Housing Conference 2016 //

More than 300 people from across Aotearoa New Zealand attended this year's National Māori Housing Conference hosted by Tauranga Moana for three days from Thursday, September 29 to Saturday, October 1.

‘Collaboration and Strategic Relationships’ was the theme of this year's conference. Delegates were inspired by the local, regional and international stories of successful housing initiatives and provided valuable feedback to the strategic workshop sessions designed to develop effective strategies to achieve better housing outcomes for Māori. The conference report will record the significant outcomes of the conference and recommendations, which will then be formally presented to Ministers and agencies involved in housing.

The Tauranga Moana National Māori Housing Organising Committee would like to acknowledge those who participated in the conference - the delegates, keynote speakers and facilitators - who shared their vision, experiences and knowledge in housing. Speaker presentations will be available on the website, www.maorihousingconference.nz, soon.

The committee would also like to acknowledge the sponsors - Te Puni Kokiri, Mangatawa Papamoa Blocks Inc, Western Bay of Plenty District Council, Babbage, Boffa Miskell, Tauranga City Council, Travois, Stratum Consultants, Holland Beckett, Papakainga Solutions Ltd, Bay of Plenty Regional Council, ABC Homes, Signature Homes, The Property Group, Community Housing Aotearoa, Modcom Buildings and the National Science Challenges.

The next conference will be hosted by Waikato Tainui in 2018 and we wish them well in their planning and preparations for a great event – mā whero, mā pango ka oti ai te mahi!

According to Ardern, it has been a case of us saying the sort of things we’ve said before, them acknowledging our need to do so, and then them responding much as we would expect them to do. All neat and tidy. Frankly, if all of this is merely virtue signalling on our part, and huffy declarations of independence on their part, then what’s the point of this diplomatic dance..? More>>
