What Matariki and Maramataka can tell us about Climate Change

  • Zealandia Pāteke Room Waiapu Road Wellington, 6012 New Zealand (map)

Matariki is a time rich with custom and tradition but also has much to tell us about our changing world today. Māori understand that changes to the environment and ecology at this time may be due to climate change. Join astrophysicist Dr Pauline Harris, of Victoria University of Wellington, as she unpacks Matariki and maramataka – the Māori lunar calendar. What can Māori knowledge and science add to our understanding of how to predict and mitigate climate change?

Open to all, bookings required
