Iwi relationships

Reciprocal partnership model

Topics for each wānanga are chosen by the communities and these often demonstrate the connections between human health & environmental health. Sometimes there are topical local issues to be explored such as oil exploration off the coast or fisheries management.

Once the community has identified a topic, the Wānanga team seeks out suitable staff and students within our networks who can effectively deliver the science required. As well as considering staff and students from the University of Otago, we explore the possibility of using local scientists and institutions. This enables on-going relationships, providing added value to the communities, schools and local scientists.

Iwi partners

The University of Otago has established Memorandum of Understanding with a number of Iwi and Māori Health providers, which underpin the University's Treaty responsiveness. 

Detailed information about these relationships can be found elsewhere on the University of Otago website.

Here is a map that shows where our Science Wānanga partners are based.
