Who is Wao?

He Wāhi Tūhāhā. He Āmua Whakaohooho | A Unique Place. An

Inspiring Future.

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.
