“Every New Zealander should attend one of these workshops.”
Workshop participant, November 2019

Whether you work in the community, in government or in business, you’ll be more effective if you understand Te Tiriti o Waitangi and its relevance today.

We’ve been teaching people about Te Tiriti, and developing high-quality learning resources, for over 20 years. We’ve learned how to navigate difficult questions and how to draw on learners’ own experiences to make this central story of Aotearoa easy and exciting to engage with.

Groundwork provides workshops on the following aspects of Te Tiriti:

Understanding Te Tiriti: these workshops provide an engaging introduction to the treaty, covering:

  • why we have a treaty, what Te Tiriti says, colonisation and its impacts, and current treaty issues

Te Tiriti and healthdesigned to support organisations in the health sector fulfill their treaty commitments. This workshop examines the relevance of Te Tiriti to health services and how applying the treaty at work can improve health outcomes for all New Zealanders.
