NAU MAI, HAERE MAI | WELCOME
WE ARE A NET+ COMMUNITY NETWORK
Te Ngahere forest lore: trees use their intricate soil and root systems to communicate between tree life, ground life, and the above-ground creatures who depend on them, including human life.
We are growing a community network inspired by these ancient forest communication systems.
Exploring ground-up community-driven Net+ solutions to co-create a pathway to Net+ futures.
WHO WE ARE
What if a solution to the environmental issues of today, exists hidden within the design of the oldest technology in the world and resides beneath our feet?
What is Net+?
We describe Net+ as reciprocal engagement with the environment, giving back more than extracting to benefit the natural environment and providing for the future and future generations.
As indigenous people, we believe nature and the natural world are the most sophisticated forms of technology.
Our tribal ancestry is evidence that working together is best for community survival.
The core of our efforts is to bring together knowledge, information & data to grow a Net+ community resource.
We are determined to assist in the transition towards Net+ environmental exchanges for the benefit of our health and wellbeing, now and into the future.
Region Net+ provides a collaborative platform to exchange information resources, so together we can activate the immediate changes needed within our local environments.
Knowledge is power, people and communities can co-create powerful change!
"The currency in a gift economy is relationship, which is expressed as gratitude, as interdependence and the ongoing cycles of reciprocity. A gift economy nurtures the community bonds which enhance mutual well-being; the economic unit is “we” rather than “I,” as all flourishing is mutual"
- Robin Wall Kimmerer, Potawatomi Nation
Dealing with the challenges of today requires different perspectives and change-makers who are willing to take risks. Region Net Positive emerged out of a pursuit to inspire and support the community, and a desire for actions to speak louder than words. We are an indigenous social enterprise driven by progressive ideas, bold actions, and a strong foundation of support.
