Tiaki Promise

In Aotearoa, we feel a special connection with the natural world. Tangata whenua (people of this land) see nature as something intrinsically intertwined with human life. Every mountain, every river, every tree has a story.

Guardians such as Ranginui (sky), Papatūānuku (earth), Tāne Mahuta (forest) and Tangaroa (oceans) look over these lands and waters.

The Tiaki Promise is a commitment to this place.

DFTB24 is committed to supporting the Tiaki Promise and therefore ask our delegates to also support #tiakipromise

We Ask That You:

Care for land, sea and nature, treading lightly and leaving no trace

Travel safely, showing care and consideration for all

Respect culture, travelling with an open heart and mind

Protect nature, keeping New Zealand clean and green

Keep NZ thriving, supporting its communities and economy

This promise encapsulates the core values of Tiaki New Zealand, emphasizing the importance of environmental stewardship, cultural respect, and community support
Be guardians, be protectors. Make a promise. Tiaki – care for New Zealand.
