Treaty workshops

“Every New Zealander should attend one of these workshops.”
Workshop participant, December 2o16

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

We’ve been teaching people about the Treaty, 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 the Treaty:

Understanding the Treaty: these workshops provide an engaging introduction to the Treaty, covering:

  • why we have a Treaty, what it says, the relationship between colonisation and the Treaty, and current Treaty issues
  • personal, organisational and sector specific responses.

Applying the Treaty: having gained an understanding of the basics, these workshops support organisations to embark on or continue with their Treaty voyages.

Treaty and healthdesigned to support organisations in the health sector fulfil their commitments to the Treaty of Waitangi, this workshop examines the relevance of the Treaty to health services and how applying the Treaty at work can improve health outcomes for all New Zealanders.

Working as alliesdrawing on local and international learning, these workshops support non-indigenous people to reflect on and develop their skills for working in support of indigenous issues.

Responding to racism: this workshop provides a chance to gain an understanding of institutional and personal racism and considers effective ways to challenge everyday racism.

Are you interested in one or more of these workshops? Need a mix or something just a bit different? We can tailor workshops to suit your organisation’s focus and needs. Please get in touch.
