A project that brings iwi together with Auckland Council to regenerate the Puhinui area bordering Manurewa and Manukau has been recognised on the world stage. Te Whakaoranga o te Puhinui has won an ‘Outstanding Award’ in the Unbuilt Parks and Environment category of the Asia Pacific International Federation of Landscape Architects awards. Manurewa Local Board chair Joseph Allan says, “It’s an acknowledgement of the benefit of working in partnership with Māori, and the project has also been selected to be showcased in a Tāmaki Makaurau / Auckland City room as one of 11 cities featuring in a virtual Climate Change exhibition at the Glasgow Science Centre next month.”
