P4NE has awarded our first three grants in our Aotearoa New Zealand programme. We developed this programme to support the following objectives:
- Ensure that wellbeing budgets and policy in New Zealand fully incorporate nature.
- Explore how economic systems change can be pursued with deep involvement of indigenous communities.
- Inspire public debate, strengthening ways in which communities and people-power can shape national and local narratives, and influence policy in relation to the economy and the environment.
Our first three grants have been awarded to:
- Project Moonshot, which seeks to connect regenerative economy actors in New Zealand via its Moonshot Map.
- Wellbeing Economy Alliance Aotearoa who are building alliances on wellbeing policy ahead of the next election.
- Ngāi Tahu Centre who are working on how to incorporate indigenous Māori knowledge in the government budget-setting process
