Over the past 10 months, research has been undertaken in Katikati on how people connect and identify as part of the community, and how they would like the community to be moving forwards. The research project was initiated by Katikati Taiao and funded through a grant from the Lottery Community Sector Research Fund.
One ongoing stream of this research is around people’s connection to the natural environment. To help get a wider perspective on this aspect, a short survey is to be emailed out over the next week to many community groups and their wider networks, to gather people’s views.
In this case, the definition of ‘environment’ includes everything outdoors from the crest of the Kaimai Ranges to the harbour, and from the Aongatete area in the south to Tuapiro Stream in the north. The information gathered will help to establish areas of importance to people (for a variety of reasons), issues of concern, and areas requiring additional attention in the future. All interested groups or individuals are being encouraged to complete the survey and have their say. The survey is anonymous, meaning no names or other personal details will be shared.
The data collected will be summarised as part of the overall community research project. The research team are aiming to present a summary of that overall project at a public social event towards the end of May, details of which will be published nearer the time.
