Judge's comments:

Ka mua, ka muri.
Looking back to move forward.

The judges were extremely impressed with the way this project married traditional knowledge, mātauranga Māori, with creativity and technology, to tackle pressing environmental issues.

The very hands-on ‘haututū’ explorative methods, drawing on traditional use of whenua, uku and paru, delivered some enlightening and delighful outcomes, both true to tradition, whilst simultaneously modern.
