How do we remove barriers for Māori to enact kaitiakitanga and what does this look like in practice? Vision Mātauranga has been an integral part of the National Science Challenges, which has resulted in a wealth of kaupapa-based research and examples of Te Tiriti-based partnership and engagement. Come hear about some of these efforts from locally- and nationally-based researchers involved in this work.

Established in 2014, the eleven government-funded National Science Challenges are cross-disciplinary, mission-led programmes designed to tackle New Zealand’s biggest science-based challenges. As they enter their final year of funding, representatives of each Science Challenge will gather in Dunedin across four nights to discuss some of the impactful research that has come out of these initiatives and how it is being applied across Aotearoa for the benefit of us all.
This talk was recorded live on 6 July 2023 as part of the New Zealand International Science Festival.
