Kia ora and Welcome to the CEESP Sharing Power Conference
This Conference is a multi-disciplinary conference that builds on the vision of "A world where equity is at the root of a dynamic harmony between people and nature, as well as among peoples. A world of diversity, productivity and integrity of natural systems. A world in which production and consumption patterns are sustainable. A world where cultural diversity is intertwined with biological diversity and both generate abundant livelihoods opportunities."
(IUCN Commission on Environmental, Economic and Social Policy: Vision Statement)
The Conference brings together scientists, economists, indigenous leaders, environmentalists, academics, policy makers in national governments and international agencies, and many others who care about the quality of heritage this generation passes on to future generations. The Conference also focuses on the need for policy and decision makers in Governments and Corporations to accommodate a greater level of inclusion of indigenous peoples and all citizens, in national and international policies on the management and governance of bio-cultural resources, and advocates the rights of mother earth – the planet.
It is a partnership between two global organisations/networks - the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and the IUCN Commission on Environmental, Economic & Social Policy (CEESP), and two Mäori (indigenous) organisations, Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Awa (a tribal authority) and Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi (a tribal university).
