Te Ohu www header

Tūhoe Te Uru Taumatua and the Living Future Collaborative New Zealand are jointly hosting this four-day live-in event. This experience will be a unique exchange between manuhiri (visiting participants) and Tūhoe. Tūhoe will share their philosophies for living in unity with Te Urewera - the natural world - and each other.  Manuhiri will bring a sharing of whole living systems thinking, regenerative development frameworks, living buildings, experiences and expertise from New Zealand and around the world. Te Ohu means “working bee”.  The focus of this ohu is a collaborative exploration of beliefs, philosophies, principles and concepts that will guide the design and development of future Tūhoe village communities, within the broader ecosystem.  Register below now:
