Polluted Paradise, New Zealand (Part 1) - People and Power New Zealand's pristine and abundant rivers and lakes have long been central to its proud reputation as a land of breath-taking natural beauty - and fundamental to a clean, green, outdoorsy brand that's used to attract millions of foreign visitors every year. But are its waterways really as sparkling and bountiful as the tourist ads suggest? It seems not. Although the issue hasn't attracted huge global attention, for some years now campaign groups such as Greenpeace have been ringing alarm bells about the deteriorating quality - and curiously diminishing volume - of New Zealand's fresh water, problems they say are both directly attributable to the country's most profitable industry and in danger of being exacerbated by government-backed projects in support of that industry. People & Power asked filmmaker Naashon Zalk to find out more. His two-part investigation, which we are screening over consecutive episodes, raises troubling questions about what can happen when a nation's desire for economic growth, however understandable and justifiable it may be, takes undue precedence over the environment.

First pain, then gain... New Zealand is a place of great natural beauty and resources, of pioneering immigrants from the Maori to the more recent settlers. They’re fierce, hardy, and strong, able to withstand challenges like the massive economic challenge they faced in the mid 1980’s. With their economy unraveling, they made huge, controversial changes, including doing away with farm subsidies and protectionist import controls. At first, it hurt. A lot. But now, the farmers and the fishers, the people and the economy, are prospering. And they wouldn’t go back to subsidies, special interests, or support for manufacturers. Travel to New Zealand with scholar Johan Norberg to meet some amazing Kiwis and see how they blazed a trail to economic prosperity.

Life Is Good : Sustainable Living (National Geographic Documentary) Sustainable living is a lifestyle that attempts to reduce an individual's or society's use of the Earth's natural resources and personal resources. Practitioners of sustainable living often attempt to reduce their carbon footprint by altering methods of transportation, energy consumption, and diet. Proponents of sustainable living aim to conduct their lives in ways that are consistent with sustainability, in natural balance and respectful of humanity's symbiotic relationship with the Earth's natural ecology and cycles. The practice and general philosophy of ecological living is highly interrelated with the overall principles of sustainable development. Lester R. Brown, a prominent environmentalist and founder of the Worldwatch Institute and Earth Policy Institute, describes sustainable living in the twenty-first century as "shifting to a renewable energy–based, reuse/recycle economy with a diversified transport system." In addition to this philosophy, practical eco-village builders like Living Villages maintain that the shift to renewable technologies will only be successful if the resultant built environment is attractive to a local culture and can be maintained and adapted as necessary over the generations.

New Zealand has an interesting history, moving from wars to ultimately peace! https://www.coolkidfacts.com/new-zealand-facts-for-kids/. Don't forget to like this video if you enjoyed it, and also SUBSCRIBE! The Maori people arrived by canoe from islands in Polynesia near Tahiti around 1,000 A.D. That is a seriously long time ago. New Zealand was founded in 1642 by a Dutch explorer Abel Tasman. He visited the islands, but his party high-tailed it out of there over 100 years later after being attacked. New Zealand was first called ‘Nieuw Zeeland’ after a region in the Netherlands. In 1769, Captain James Cook came to the islands. He was British and they settled there. In 1840 they signed a treaty with the Maori people called The Treaty of Waitangi. New Zealand is a really remote country, and a flight there from America would take about 13 hours and if you were flying from the UK you’d only get there about 24 hours later. This is one difficult place to get to. It is rather small at 103,883 square miles (269,055 square kilometers). Now this is something to think about – it is about the same size as the UK. Now the UK has 63 million people living there, and New Zealand only has about 4 million. Wow. This means New Zealand is one of the least populated countries in the world. The capital city of New Zealand is Wellington; however the largest city is actually Auckland where most people live. Interestingly Wellington is the southernmost capital in the world. The highest mountain is Aoraki Mount Cook which is 12,316 feet high (3,754 metres). It was first just called just Aoraki or “Cloud Piercer” by the Maori people as they believed that the sons of the sky father, Raki, turned to stone and became the mountains. Lake Taupo, the largest lake in New Zealand, was formed by a massive volcanic eruption 26,000 years ago. It was so huge that the dust could even be seen in China…that’s one mighty eruption. New Zealand is home to one of the world’s heaviest insects. It’s called the weta and is part of the cricket family. It weighs 2.5 ounces (70 grams). That is very heavy for an insect; it weighs three times more than a mouse and looks like a giant cockroach. Yuk! It’s hard to imagine an insect that size. New Zealand has three official languages: English, Māori and New Zealand Sign Language. A huge 220 pounds (100kg) of butter and 143 pounds (65kg) of cheese are produced for each person that lives in New Zealand each year. If you’re eight you would probably weigh around 57 pounds; so they’re producing about 4 times your weight in butter and about double your weight in cheese. Try and pick up something that heavy…bet you won’t be able to! Try this for a tongue twister! The longest place name in the world is....wait for it - it even requires its own line here.... Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateapokaiwhenuakitanatahu, which is a hill in Hawkes Bay. Do you think you could pronounce that? You probably know this, but all three Lord of the Rings movies were filmed in New Zealand. What you might not know is that this put heaps of money into the country’s pockets; around $200 million. They even created a Minister for Lord of the Rings. And finally....Bungee jumping was invented in New Zealand! The world’s first commercial bungee jump was a 140 foot (43 meter) jump off the Kawarau Bridge in Queenstown in 1988.

Ecosystem services: the benefits people obtain from nature. The idea of managing natural resources based on ecosystem services is gaining traction internationally. For this approach to be successful in NZ, we need a comprehensive understanding of the state of our ecosystem services. More than 100 of the country's leading scientists and academics have penned chapters for a new book 'Ecosystem Services: Conditions and Trends', the first overview of ecosystem services in NZ. More information Ecosystem services can be categorised as follows: - Provisioning - such as food and fresh water - Regulating - such as air quality - Cultural - such as recreation and a sense of belonging - Supporting - such as soil quality and natural habitat resistance to weeds

Lying at the most northern and accessible end of Fiordland National Park, Milford sound offers some of the world's most staggering coastal scenery with its dramatic peaks and dark blue waters. The area's frequent downpours only enhance this South Island beauty, sending numerous waterfalls cascading down the cliffs. Bay of Islands ========== The Bay of Islands is one of the most popular holiday destinations in New Zealand. The picturesque area contains 144 islands, many secluded bays and some great sandy beaches. This beautiful bay has an abundance of marine life including whales, penguins, dolphins and the big marlin. Not surprisingly, it is a popular tourist spot for sailing yachts on world cruises and international sport fishermen. Tongariro National Park =================== The first national park of New Zealand, Tongariro is known for its surprises and extremes. The park's diverse range of ecosystems includes tranquil lakes, active volcanoes, herb fields, untamed forests and desert-like plateaus. Start your trek at the Whakapapa Visitor Center, just a three hour hike from the stunning Taranaki Falls. The short hike will take you through scrubland and forest and across the lava line of volcanic eruptions from hundreds of years ago. Rotorua ======== Rotorua is known as the thermal wonderland of New Zealand. There are numerous geysers and hot springs in and around the city. Many of these are in parks and reserves. Natural eruptions of steam, hot water and mud occasionally occur in new locations. Nearby Wai-O-Tapu is also a popular tourist attraction with many hot springs noted for their colorful appearance, in addition to the Lady Knox Geyser. Franz Josef Glacier ============= This glacier, located within Westland National Park in the southwest, is one of the world's most accessible. Visitors can walk right up to the foot of the massive glacier or take a helicopter ride over the dazzling Ice Age remnant. Together with Fox Glacier it is one of South Westland's major drawcards for tourists. Kaikoura ======== This small coastal town on the South Island is a haven for seafood lovers. You can spot fur seals, dolphins, sperm whales and albatrosses off the shore, then indulge in a feast of fresh crayfish, mussels, blue cod and more. Land lovers can take a wilderness walk through the untamed and dramatic Kaikoura forest. Napier Art Deco ======== Napier, a small city in Hawke's Bay on the North Island's east coast, is famous for its eye-catching art deco architecture. Most of Napier was leveled by an earthquake in 1931. The rebuilding period coincided with the short-lived Art Deco era and as a result Napier's architecture is strikingly different from any other city in the world. Thousands of tourist visit Napier every February for the Art Deco Weekend, an event dedicated to the style, vintage cars, picnics and the soapbox derby. Sky Tower =============== The Sky Tower is an observation and telecommunications tower located in New Zealand's largest city. At a height of 328 meters (1,076 ft) it is the tallest free-standing structure in the Southern Hemisphere and the Sky Tower has become an iconic structure in Auckland's skyline. The tower offers views of up to 80 km away and fine dining in the Orbit revolving restaurant. Abel Tasman National Park =============== Located on the northern tip of the country's South Island, this vast national park is a hiker's dream. Closed to vehicles, one must enter by boat, foot or small plane, but the trip is well worth it. While traversing the mountainous terrain, blue penguins, wekas, oyster catchers, wood pigeons and other rare birds can all be seen. Coromandel Peninsula ============== This north-eastern peninsula is famous for its white and golden sand beaches that frame magnificent coastal scenery, forests perfect for days of exploration and other natural wonders. Start your visit in Thames, a small but picturesque city with a rich history of gold mining. Don't miss a stop at Hot Water Beach, where visitors can dig their own hot pool from the springs under the sands. ====================== New Zealand tourist attractions, New Zealand Tourism, New Zealand Nature, NZ cities, NZ full video HD, New Zealand HD, New Zealand Travel, New Zealand Travel Guide, New Zealand Vacations, New Zealand Landscape, New Zealand Tours, Top Tourist Attractions in New Zealand, Milford Sound, Bay of Islands Tongariro, National Park, Rotorua, Franz Josef Glacier, Kaikoura, Napier Art Deco, Sky Tower Abel Tasman National Park, Coromandel Peninsula

100% Clean and Green - that's the Pure tourism campaign, but is it a convenient screen for a host of evils currently afflicting our natural environment? Using New Zealand’s waterways to illustrate her argument that this can no longer be accepted as the status quo, Catherine demonstrates how pollution of our streams has potentially lethal issues for the health of all who use this water. Catherine's solution is to provide for environmental protection in our human rights legislation. A line in the Bill of Rights or Human Rights Act would allow the protection of the environment be discussed in the national courts. It could compel a person, company or organisation to take active measures to ensure we live in a heathy, sustainable country . It should be a Human Right to live in a society or environment that is not detrimental to our health. However, New Zealanders do not have legal protection at any level in our consitution to enforce this fundamental necessity. Catherine Iorns is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Law at Victoria University of Wellington, where she researches, writes and teaches on environmental law, human rights, and statutory interpretation. Ms Iorns is also a national board member of Amnesty International Aotearoa New Zealand, of 350 Aotearoa, and of Environment and Conservation Organisations of New Zealand.

Johana Yletyinen, University of Canterbury We live in an era of unprecedented change. The cumulative impact of human activities is affecting the environment on local and global levels with far reaching consequences, yet at the same time we are becoming increasingly aware of our dependence on a healthy environment. The social–ecological system (SES) concept emphasises that humans are part of nature. Of particular concern in SES research is the finding that the SES typically has tipping points: critical thresholds where accelerating change caused by a positive feedback can drive the system to a new state. Tipping-point events are challenging for management, as they usually occur unexpectedly, when the system is no longer able to absorb pressure, and include immediate loss of ecosystem services. In New Zealand, nature and natural resources are under increasing pressure, from both domestic and international sources. Our project aims to anticipate tipping-point events that may occur in our social– ecological systems. We study, for instance, tipping points related to natural habitats, harvesting strategies and cultural keystone species. Importantly, we strive to identify case-specific leverage points (i.e. places within the system where small management effort can cause a widespread effect). This project also aims to understand how the tipping-point mechanism can be utilised to purposefully move an SES to a new, desired state. In addition to improved understanding of local social–ecological resilience, New Zealand-specific tipping-point research is essential for policy-makers to reduce the risks of undesired tipping points, and to guide regional adaptation to global changes.

http://www.stats.govt.nz/ Population counts from the New Zealand Census of Population and Dwellings can be displayed by age and sex in population pyramids. This video demonstrates a tool that contains both Census data and population projections in two sets (from 1938-1990 and from 1991-2061) of overlaid graphs that can be played across time. This dynamic population pyramid allows us to view population changes and see the demographic momentum effect in action (either that of population growth resulting from a youthful age structure or that that of population decline resulting from an older age structure). We can view this process in action, leading up to and beyond the point where natural increase (growth) shifts to become natural decrease (decline). The dynamic population pyramid provides a quick way of seeing, for example, the long-term impact of reduced fertility rate during World War II on the structure of the New Zealand population.

What are New Zealand’s foreign policy priorities in the time to come? And how are New Zealand’s relations with Norway and its Nordic neighbors? This and more will be the topic of The Rt. Hon Winston Peters’ talk when he visits NUPI. On its website, the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade sets out seven strategic goals: International Rules and Institutions: Strengthen, protect and use international rules and institutions to pursue New Zealand values and interests. Economic Returns and Resilience: Grow sustainable economic returns and resilience from trade, investment and other international connections. Asia-Pacific Architecture: Embed New Zealand as an active and integral partner in building Asia-Pacific architecture in support of regional stability and economic integration. Pacific: Promote a stable, prosperous and resilient Pacific in which New Zealand’s interests and influence are safeguarded. Environment and Climate Change: Promote sustainable international solutions to global environment and natural resource challenges that impact on New Zealand. Security and Safety: Lead New Zealand’s international action to advance and protect New Zealanders’ safety and New Zealand’s security. International Relationships: Build and leverage targeted international relationships to achieve our goals. Winston Peters was appointed Minister of Foreign Affairs after the 2017 general election. He is also appointed the Deputy Prime Minister, Minister for State-Owned Enterprises, and Minister for Racing. Mr Peters is Leader of the New Zealand First party which entered into coalition with the Labour Party, with the Green Party as a support partner. Mr Peters has had a long political career. He first entered Parliament in 1978 in the electorate seat of Hunua, was MP for the electorate seat of Tauranga from 1984 till 2005, in subsequent years has entered parliament as a list MP, although held the Northland seat from 2015-2017. In 1993, Mr Peters formed the New Zealand First Party. It gained representation in New Zealand’s last FPP (First Past the Post) election, and then in 1996 won 17 seats in New Zealand’s first MMP (mixed member proportional) election. He was Deputy Prime Minister and Treasurer from 1996-1998, leading business and finance delegations to Asia’s capitals, the US and Canada. This is Mr Peter’s second appointment as Minister of Foreign Affairs. From 2005-2008, he held the portfolio when New Zealand First entered a confidence and supply arrangement with the Labour Government.

NTDTV http://english.ntdtv.com/?c=151&a=2112 CHAN: New Zealand has an abundance of natural resources including clean water ways and native bush. That could be a few of the reasons why thousands of tourists flock there each year. But which town in New Zealand has the best...drinking water that is? It took a national competition to settle it. Our team is there to find out more. STORY: So which town in has the best drinking water then? A small town nestled at the top of the South Island by the name of Takaka. Other people are catching on to what Takaka residents have known for years that their town has the best drinking water. [Elizabeth Dransfield, Takaka Water Contestant]: "Well I didn't actually see the thing on the television but my husband, Trevor, told me that they were looking for the best water, so I sent off a very cheeky email and said I didn't know why they were going to have a competition because we were going to win it any way... because we've got the Te Waikoropupu Springs." Takaka tap water won easily, being described as "the nectar of the gods" and it's not surprising. Takaka is home to the Te Waikoropupu Springs, the largest cold water springs in the southern hemisphere with some of the clearest water ever measured. After plenty of media hype, large soft drink companies have approached the owners who bottle the spring water. They weren't available for comment but did mention they won't sell out to big companies on account of financial gain. This is Gina Shakespear, NTD, Takaka, New Zealand.

VO New Zealand will extend its support to Laos for development INTRO: New Zealand Ambassador to Laos Reuben Levermore offered an exclusive interview to our LNTV English news team that, New Zealand will extend its support to Laos for development with a focus on tourism, agriculture and renewable energy – fields in which both countries have potential. STORY: New Zealand Ambassador to Laos Reuben Levermore revealed the New Zealand government's plans for Laos while the embassy was hosting the New Zealand-Asean 40th Anniversary Award reception in Vientiane. Interview: Reuben Levermore, New Zealand Ambassador to Laos … English…. The ambassador pointed out the similarities between the two countries, saying they are small but have an abundance of natural resources. New Zealand has a sizeable tourism industry while this sector is growing rapidly in Laos. New Zealand has provided development support for Laos since the 1950s through Colombo Plan projects, and presently provides for agricultural and tourism development as well as scholarships for post-graduate studies at New Zealand universities. Some of the most outstanding and successful projects supported by New Zealand in recent years are provincial tourism development in Luang Namtha, Xieng Khuang, Borikhamxay, and Khammuan provinces, the internationally recognised Nam Ha Ecotourism Project (completed in 2008), and the Fighting Poverty at Plain of Jars Project (completed in 2010)….. insert…. Interview: Reuben Levermore, New Zealand Ambassador to Laos … English…. Ambassador Levermore said New Zealand would soon begin a project to develop livestock farming for beef production with the project's terms of reference about to be finalised. He noted that agriculture was prominent in many countries but it was unusual for New Zealand as a developed country to have industries based on agriculture. He explained that agriculture provided business opportunities in New Zealand and was the foundation of its economy, while the country sees a lot of potential in Laos such as land and good growing conditions for many products. He cited the popularity of Lao coffee as an example, while also mentioning beef production as another area of potential. the ambassador said, It is important for Laos to use its natural resources to create more opportunities for people. As much of the population relies on agriculture we can help to increase incomes in communities, reducing poverty. Laos ha s been the country responsible for coordinating New Zealand's dialogue with Asean from 2012 to 2015. Interview: Reuben Levermore, New Zealand Ambassador to Laos … English…. Ambassador Levermore said that as New Zealand and Laos have close connections in Asean and Laos has been very helpful for New Zealand, he expected an increase of support for Laos would be announced during the Asean Summit to be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in November when Asean leaders, including the prime ministers of the two countries, will attend. The ambassador revealed that 25 scholarships will be available for Lao students to study at New Zealand universities next year to take courses that support development sectors in Laos, as well as courses in English, which is the working language of Asean.

Professor Guy McPherson (http://guymcpherson.com/) is is an emeritus professor at the University of Arizona School of Natural Resources, but he gave up his university post on ethical grounds to devote himself to building a Lifeboat and lecturing/educating on the collapse that faces us and is one of the key people in the Peak Oil and the Transition/Lifeboat movement. He gave a talk at the Petone Community Library on Friday, 6 July 2012 on transitioning in the light of climate change and Peak Oil. He also had much to say about how we as communities are to respond to these challenges and transition to a Post-Carbon world.

New Zealand already has a well-deserved reputation for outstanding natural beauty but that’s only a small part of the story. Our nation is filled with artists, businesspeople, entrepreneurs, inventors and innovators whose stories are just as awe inspiring as our landscapes. These are New Zealand’s inside stories. Tales that can only be told by our people and the people that interact with us. To get a realistic picture of our country’s contribution to the world, we knew we’d have to look far and wide. So that is what we have done. By using a multitude of smaller stories we could create a narrative big enough to demonstrate that New Zealand’s contribution to the world is limitless and impossible to ignore. What is the most important thing in the world? He tangata, he tangata, he tangata. It is people, it is people, it is people. Like to see humanity at its best? We know a place. www.newzealand.com #NZstoryteller
