Where it all began

Dec 3rd

The first meeting was held with possible steering group members, to focus on Transition Island Waiheke. See the Inventory of resources and initiatives, which came out of it.

Early October

A meeting was called at the beginning of October. 22 people were invited at short notice and 27 people turned up. We watched some TT video clips of Rob Hopkins describing the 12 steps. People expressed a keen interest to continue the dialogue.


With the benefit of the charitable trust operated Waiheke community cinema, it has been possible to do some good raise awareness over the last three years. As an island community Waiheke is very aware of how much it has become reliant on outside inputs, and is now embracing many initiatives to strengthen local resilience.
