PKP started in 2017 with a humble 2 sign ups - us. Before we left for Canada to meet with the Indigenous peoples' of the whenua/land, we launched our first ever PKP campaign. Our aim was, and still is, to continue to raise awareness around the actual state of our taiao, our environment, both here in Aotearoa and around the world.
Since 2017, we have been involved in many projects and works both on the ground in our haapori, in our communities, and in governance spaces. In recent years PKP has reached nearly 2,500 sign ups. Despite the different works PKP has been fortunate to influence, the heart of the kaupapa, of this initiative, is here, on the ground for one dedicated lunar cycle.
By choosing to run PKP by the Māori lunar calendar and by Matariki, we immediately choose to operate in accordance to our taiao. PKP is not just about waste and food, it's about reconnecting to our natural eco-systems so we can thrive.
