Whakamānawa ā Taiao – Environmental Awards


The next Whakamānawa ā Taiao Awards is scheduled for 2025.

Northland Regional Council has decided to revise the frequency of the Whakamānawa ā Taiao - Environmental Awards. The awards will now be held every two years.

While we understand that this change may be disappointing for some, we believe that it will provide entrants with valuable time between award cycles to continue their mahi in protecting and enhancing the environment and strengthen their awards application in the process.

Thank you for your continued commitment to helping protect and care for our environment. We will provide an update closer to the 2025 awards opening.


Congratulations to the winners of the 2023 Whakamānawa ā Taiao - Environmental Awards. Check out the meet the winners page to find out who they are. 

Communities throughout our beautiful region are doing amazing work to protect and enhance our environment.

The Northland Regional Council Whakamānawa ā Taiao - Environmental Awards recognise the people and organisations making a difference for Northland’s environment. Their commitment and incredible contributions are helping our environment thrive and your mahi is highly valued.

Despite the challenges of recent times, people across Te Taitokerau continue their inspiring mahi, and we are committed to acknowledge and celebrate these selfless achievements.
