Development of the Remediation Strategy
Capturing the Tiwai Cultural, Oral and Social History
Te Runaka o Awarua Tiwai Remediation Project requires the collection of cultural, oral and social history to further inform the vision and purpose for remediation at the site.
Articulating the vision for the Tiwai site is a foundation requirement for progressing the remediation project plan. There is an opportunity to better understand the site history, our people's recollections, images and memories, and tailor our approaches accordingly. Through this we will have a greater understanding of our expectations for the remediation approach. We will know the best ways for us to progress this mahi and we will be able to be deliberate, effective and consistent in our messaging.
Representing on governance and working groups
The AWG members represent the interests of this mahi on multiple groups. Guided by the remediation strategy and informed by the conversations and connections with the wider community, our role is to effectively represent Awarua. A key part of these roles is to provide information in a timely and transparent way.
