“As we mark the 170th anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi, the hope is that New Zealanders continue to consider the Treaty as a living document,” says NZ National Commission for UNESCO chairman, Bryan Gould.
“New Zealanders should continue to learn about the Treaty and what it means for our country and future.”
Last year the commission launched a Treaty of Waitangi web resource that has been a popular resource for New Zealanders.
The commission’s Social Science sub commission works closely with the Human Rights Commission to explore and document connections between international human rights agendas and issues raised by the Treaty – including the relevance of the Treaty for people of different ethnicities – in Aotearoa New Zealand.
