What we do
We provide an innovative education programme which supports growing the capacity and capability of whānau, hapū, iwi, marae, kōhanga reo, kura, wānanga, and community organisations. Our desire is to collaborate with communities through our education programme for the urgent collective goal of a zero-waste, carbon-neutral future for Aotearoa

Oranga Taiao, Oranga Marae, Oranga Whānau
Our vision is for a thriving natural environment that nurtures our communities, marae, and whānau, who in turn contribute to the collective wellbeing of Papatūānuku and Ranginui. Through indigenous knowledge and values, Para Kore encourages re-normalisation of zero-waste, closed loop living practices and philosophies across Aotearoa. Our values of manaakitanga, whakapapa, kaitiakitanga, māramatanga and rangatiratanga guide our activities and our work with others.
Our mission at Para Kore is to educate and advocate from a Māori worldview for a world without waste.
