We, the citizens of Taranaki,
for the purpose of developing
the social, economic, environmental and cultural well-being
of our province.
Our mission is to awaken
more active citizenship and generous engagement
on all our major social and environmental issues,
and to support community initiatives
which work towards the common good.
Our vision is of a Taranaki
full of families and communities
which are a great place to raise children,
to foster friendship, to lead satisfying lives,
and to take care of one another and the earth.
We seek to engage as much insight, creativity,
innovation and entrepreneurship that we can bring
to building, developing and sustaining
the communities we wish to live in.
And we pledge ourselves
to the stewardship of our common wealth
on behalf of future generations.
