Huihuinga Te Kura Kaupapa Māori: Gene Editing in Aotearoa

Hamilton | Friday 22 June
After-school workshop aimed at students and teachers of Te Kura Kaupapa Māori who are interested in the implications of new gene editing technologies for Māori.

Royal Society Te Apārangi is convening a multi-disciplinary panel to consider the potential uses and implications of Gene Editing in Aotearoa, and have released discussion papers on Healthcare and Pest Control

As a part of this investigation, the Society recognises that school students have questions, opinions and concerns about gene editing and invites Y12 and Y13 ākonga and their kaiako (of any and all disciplines) to attend and take part in a Schools’ workshop. This will be Māori led and Māori focussed.

To participate, students and teachers are asked to consider and be prepared to discuss, in either Te Reo Māori or English, the following questions:

•            Should gene editing form part of our healthcare options?

•            Should gene editing be part of New Zealand’s tool box for pest control?


Please register your interest in attending before Monday 18 June.
