2. What we want to see happen - Long term Goals for our work
- Each of us is aware of the land, water, air, energy and materials we use, knows how to use them sustainably, and takes responsibility for doing so.
- A thriving new economy, rich in creativity and meaningful work, results from business and the community sector embracing their social and environmental responsibilities.
- Government uses indicators of quality of life and human and environmental wellbeing to measure economic success.
- We understand our different histories and have developed local and national relationships that are grounded in Te Tiriti o Waitangi.
- People are secure that their essential needs will be met, and they have the time, resources and ability to participate in their communities and develop their potential.
- Negotiation, mediation and peacemaking are the primary means of resolving conflict.
- Our unique plants, animals and ecosystems flourish as the scale of human impact is reduced.
- Energy demand is stabilised and supplied from renewable resources.
- All rubbish becomes resources; toxic substances which do not break down harmlessly are phased out.
- Food production, processing and distribution are environmentally sustainable and provide a healthy, affordable diet for all.
- Power imbalances are reduced and resources are shared more equally.
- Those who have plenty learn to say "enough" so that all may have enough.
- Science and technology serve human needs and the biosphere within an ethical framework.
- We nurture creativity, wisdom and life-long learning.
- The main focus of New Zealand's international work is environmental integrity, peace, justice and human rights.
- We protect our sovereignty and enhance sustainability by controlling corporate power in the public interest, limiting foreign control of our land and becoming more self-reliant.
