Restoring Karioi: Ecology, Community and the Practice of Peace. A three lesson unit aimed at Year 9-10 based on a chapter from the book Pursuing Peace in Godzone (VUP, 2018).  A copy of this book was sent to the Chaplains in the Presbyterian Schools’ network in 2018. The story of A Rocha (a Christian conservation organisation) and its ongoing partnership with the local community in Raglan to restore the ecological health and wellbeing of Mt Karioi is a window into understanding Shalom, the restoration of relationships (including our relationship with the environment), wholeness, peace.
