PHYSICAL

Marae can be a multi-purpose hub that can pivot. In peacetime Marae can be short term tourism accommodation for groups and campervan accommodation. Marae can also provide authentic cultural experiences such as waiata, haka, hangi and the traditional growing of foods and health and wellbeing ingredients.

In a crisis, Marae can be Civil Defence pods, pop-up medical centres, and distribution centres of essential food value packs and hygiene packs to Kaumatua, Whanau Hauā (disabled, blind and hard of hearing communities), Rest Homes and essential workers
