For centuries, people have navigated by the stars. The appearance of Matariki, the kāhui whetū (star cluster) sacred to the Māori people of Aotearoa New Zealand, heralds new beginnings and is a predictor of good fortune, positive change and prosperity. We will assemble under Matariki, with each of our themes aligned to a different whetū (star).
These themes, and the contemporary lenses we will examine them through, have been nominated as most important by our global community of action. They will form the basis of a unique, social learning programme designed by 150+ experts in 30+ countries.
Join us in person or virtually. Connect, collaborate, create. Immerse yourself in our shared Kaupapa (cause) and access the world’s best insights, case studies, toolkits, ideas and stories of change woven together to inspire and accelerate more change in the future.
A gathering like no other, the kāhui whetu (star cluster), Matariki, continues to provide us with navigation. Now, four related Māori whakataukī (proverbs) lead us through a full experiential journey and give you the flexibility to set your own path forward.
Ka puta Matariki, ka rere Whānui. Ko te tohu tēnā o te tau e! The stars re-appear to take flight. Mātariki brings good fortune, positive change and prosperity through new beginnings.
Hapaitia te ara tika, pūmau ai te rangatiratanga mō nga uri whakatipu. Foster the pathway of knowledge to strength, independence and growth for future generations.
Mā mua ka kite a muri, mā muri ka ora a mua. Those who lead give sight to those who follow, those who follow give life to those who lead.
Nā tāu rourou, nā tōku rourou, ka ora ai te iwi. With your food basket, and my food basket, the people will thrive.
