Te Toi Whakaruruhau O Aotearoa has officially transitioned from being a contestable – time limited research project to an ongoing research programme with increased funding provided by Toka Tū Ake. This is a very exciting milestone for Te Toi as we move forward with this partnership and into a new chapter of the centre.
On the 6th of July 2023 the Royal Society Te Apārangi hosted a discussion panel where Professor Christine Kenney along with Professor Jonathan Boston FRSNZ and Lynn Freeman discussed the book “Post Growth: Life After Capitalism” with author and ecological economist[SM1] [CK2] Professor Tim Jackson FRS.

We would like to congratulate members of our leadership team, Pūkenga, and associate researchers for their success in the 2023 Endeavour Fund round with their Research Program “Pungapunga Auaha: Partnering with tangata whenua to develop a new low-carbon pumice economic sector for Aotearoa-NZ”. This research is focused on characterising and quantifying pumice resources in the Taupō Volcanic Zone, testing their suitability for creating low-carbon concretes and other high-value products, and identifying pathways for a Māori-led pumice economy that maximise benefits while minimising risks for Māori decision-makers. The project is co-led by Anke Zernack (Massey), Nicola McDonald (ME Research) and Christine Kenney (Massey) and will run for 5 years.
