Wellbeing

Associate Professor Krushil Watene (Ngāti Manu, Te Hikutu, Ngāti Whātua o Orākei, Tonga) specialises in moral and political philosophies of well-being, development, and justice with a particular focus on indigenous philosophies. In her piece in "The Conversation", Krushil reflects on the fact that "our well-being is intimately connected to other people and our natural environment". Maori and Indigenous peoples around the globe have long known this. Once beyond our present constraints "...we can’t afford to stop caring about collective well-being.
