The Integrated Kaipara Harbour Management Group is pleased to introduce Kevin Prime – Environment Court Commissioner, farmer, forester, policy adviser and plenary speaker at our upcoming event:
Kevin’s plenary speech will share his perspectives on the integration of Western and Māori knowledge – drawing on examples from his family farm in Motatau, where he has ensured mātauranga Māori continues to be utilised within his business, and in the protection and health of the environment where he lives and works.
As a Māori leader, Kevin Prime believes in locally developed solutions. This means active participation from communities and that a balance between economic development and sustainability is central to the ongoing future success of a healthy and productive region. Within these themes, he will address the importance of community involvement in the future health of the Kaipara Moana.
