Experts explain what co-governance is and why NZers shouldn't be 'afraid'
As the debate over co-governance continues, experts are explaining what it means to them and other New Zealanders and why there's no reason to be "afraid".
In a special episode on Monday night, The Hui delved into the co-governance debate and discussed what shared power looks like in contemporary Aotearoa.
For Tukoroirangi Morgan, chairperson of Te Arataura, who helped spearhead the iwi's Waikato River settlement claim, he said co-governance is about equal numbers working together with treaty partners.
"In this instance, there's a mix of commercial industry representatives as well as councillors. So this is about an opportunity for the river iwi to have their say, to make meaningful and significant decisions about the health and wellbeing of the longest river in this country, the Waikato River," he told The Hui.
