Who is Wao?
He Wāhi Tūhāhā. He Āmua Whakaohooho | A Unique Place. An
Our aim is to educate, inspire and enable New Zealand
communities to accelerate towards a carbon-zero, regenerative
future and beyond.
We are living in a decade of massive change spurred on by the
reality of climate change, a shift in economic paradigms and
measures taken to mitigate the impact of COVID-19. This is going to
bring many challenges and but also opportunities.
To adapt to the new economic and environmental reality, we will
have to change the way that we govern, work and behave. With this
in mind, Wao was set up to help communities through this transition
period. We look to inspire, educate and enable communities to look
towards the opportunities created by this transition and help to
shape a future that looks towards not just a sustainable future, but
one where we give back more than we take.
What is the meaning of Wao?
The forest, with its intrinsic diversity, natural regeneration and
climate regulating abilities.
