Kōtare’s vision is of a future with economic, social and environmental justice in Aotearoa based on Te Tiriti o Waitangi. With that vision in mind, our purpose is to support community action for a more just world through participatory education and research. We invite you join us in that work.

You can help further the vision by becoming a member or supporter at Support Kōtare.
