5. Rick Tau, Respected Elder of the Ngai Tahu tribe of South Island (New
Zealand) welcomed the participants, notably those of the Northern
Hemisphere, "to the winter of the Southern Hemisphere, winter being a
season of planning" and exhorted them "to open the doors to knowledge
and thought... so that the results of the meetings be acceptable in
terms of brotherhood... and so that we may follow in the footsteps of
our ancestors who left us the landscapes that we know."
6. Te Kananawa Pitiroi, a Respected Elder of the Ngati Tuwharetoa tribe of
the central North Island, also spoke in Maori and exhorted participants
to "remember that the pristineness that remains here is worth
preserving".
7. Parekura Horomia, Maori Affairs Minister and Associate Minister of

participants to let the spirit of the language permeate them.
8. He was followed by Garry Moore, Mayor of Christchurch, who welcomed the
participants of the 31st session of the Committee and introduced them
to the heritage of Christchurch.
9. The Governor-General of New Zealand, Anand Satyanand, then spoke of the
need to protect world heritage sites in the face of serious challenges
including "climate change, depleting fisheries and water resources,
declining ecosystems and a host of other problems". He pointed out that
while the Pacific Region covers one third of the globe, it is
underrepresented on the World Heritage List. Speaking of the particular
history of New Zealand and its longstanding respect for both Maori and
Western institutions and traditions, the Governor-General quoted a
Maori proverb: "Care for the land and care for the people; go forth".
10. Prime Minister Helen Clark for her part highlighted New Zealand's
particularity as a land that has experienced only 1,000 years of human
habitation. As a result, New Zealand has many fragile and unique
ecosystems which must be preserved. Ms Clark stressed that East
Rennell, of the Solomon Islands, is the only World Heritage site to be
found among all of the South Pacific Small Island States.
11. Mr Marcio Barbosa, Deputy-Director General of UNESCO, on behalf of the
Director-General of UNESCO, praised the Maori cultural heritage that
"embraces many different and interlinked forms, both tangible and
intangible. In recognizing the spiritual links uniting Maori people
with their environment, the World Heritage Committee had taken a
decisive step in celebrating the intangible value of natural heritage.
12. Mr Zhang Xinsheng, the Chairman of UNESCO's Executive Board, encouraged
Small Island Developing States of the Pacific to ratify UNESCO's World
Heritage Convention to help correct the region's underrepresentation on
the World Heritage List. He stressed that "in our ever more globalized
world, all dimensions of heritage - natural, cultural, tangible and
intangible - are part of the sustainable development equation" and
warned against the dangers of uniformization generated by
globalization.
13. Dame Silvia Cartwright, Chair of New Zealand's National Commission for
UNESCO then introduced the presentation of the UNESCO Asia Pacific
World Heritage Youth Forum organized prior to the Committee meeting (19-
23 June 2007) in which 30 young students from 12 countries in the
region had participated (Australia, Cook Islands, Fiji, Japan, Republic
of Korea, Marshall Islands, Samoa, Thailand, Tonga, French Polynesia,
Vanuatu and New Zealand). She stated that the New Zealand National
Commission was actively working on promoting the work of UNESCO in
particular among the youth.
14. "The World Heritage Youth Challenge", prepared as a 10-minute film by
the 30 young students, was shown, highlighting the forum which focussed
on the development of understanding and skills relating to World
Heritage and the environment, integrating Information and Communication
Technologies to encourage and stimulate a fresh perspective to
international heritage issues. The film showed sequences from the youth
forum which had taken place not only in Christchurch but also in five
locations around the Canterbury region, where they were filming and
collecting material while learning about the World Heritage Convention
from heritage and conservation experts.
15. The final speaker of the opening ceremony was Mr Tumu te Heuheu,
Paramount Chief of the Central North Island Tuwharetoa Tribe and
Chairperson of the 31st session of the World Heritage Committee. He
stressed the importance of having communities play their part in the
preservation of heritage, and spoke of the Pacific region's heritage
and the history of its peoples. The meeting rose at 6:50 p.m.
