Para Kore Marae Incorporated

Para Kore Marae Incorporated

Established in 2010, Para Kore is a Māori, not-for-profit organisation with the aim of whanaungatanga (good relationship) to Papatūānuku.


“Riro taonga mai, hoki taonga atu.”

“We receive valuable resources from Papatūānuku, we return valuable resources to her.”

Para Kore Marae Incorporated is a not-for- profit, Māori organisation established to deliver waste minimisation education and training to marae and communities throughout Aotearoa New Zealand. Our organisation seeks to create behaviour change that diverts waste from landfills, reduces water and air pollution and educates the public to reduce litter.

Para Kore works regionally throughout Aotearoa delivering the innovative Para Kore education programme to marae and organisations within the frameworks of kaupapa and tikanga Māori.

Para Kore embraces the tikanga of caring for Ranginui and Papatūānuku. We understand that dumping waste in landfills, burning rubbish on our marae and littering is a waste of valuable resources, pollutes our environment and is harmful to us all.
