Natural resource management is our speciality

Sustainability. Diversity and Equity. Climate change and Resilience. The issues facing us are complex.

Solving ‘wicked’ problems needs all of us, constructively engaged, to find solutions.

This is where we can help.

Who we work with

We work at the interface of people with the environment. We support organisations and groups grappling with land, water and other environmental issues.

We work with governors, leaders and staff in councils, science organisations, iwi and hapū, educators,  industry organisations, government departments, companies, not-for-profits, catchment and care groups.

How we work

We work in partnership with our clients from the get-go, bringing to this the people-centred, kaupapa-driven philosophy of the Technology of Participation (ToP™) together with a Te Tiriti o Waitangi informed approach.

What we offer

We consult on matters at the interface of people, land and water. We provide research writing, needs analysis, evaluation, extension and environmental education programme design services.

Our research methods are firmly grounded in participatory processes, enabling those affected to be involved in a research project or investigation.

We can apply these social research processes to ensure that all voices are heard, and to help organisations better tailor their services to their client group.

We ensure our reports and resources are easy to understand, bringing to this skills in technical writing and journalism.
