Weaving the Strands
April 02 - 05 2019, Napier
Nā tātau i whatu te tukutuku, he tūmatakahuki tā te iwi.
The tukutuku was woven by us, but the people bind it together.
NZPI invites planners and allied professionals from government, corporate, and Iwi groups, to join us in Napier for the 2019 Planning Conference Weaving the Strands. Our conference streams are natural resources, settlements, practice and theory, climate change, and the future of planning. In weaving the strands, the conference themes will be considered from the perspectives (or threads) of : leadership, integration and collaboration, Māori and indigenous planning, technology and science, and culture. Come and join us to see local Hawke’s Bay examples of these planning issues and to hear top New Zealand and international speakers share their best practice experiences.
The exploration of these issues will deliver conversations and new thinking designed to spark solutions to the current, complex issues facing New Zealand planners, from both a regional resource management and district planning perspective.
We invite you to be part of the conversation.
Papa Pounamu Hui
Tuesday 02 April 2019
The Papa Pounamu Pre-Conference Hui is an annual signature event, held prior to the start of the NZPI Annual Conference. Since the formation of a Maori Special Interest Group within NZPI, the Hui has become a key event in which delegates and speakers come together to discuss key topical issues and advancement in Maori planning practice. In 2019, the Hui will be held on Tuesday 2nd April, prior to the start of the main conference.
Papa Pounamu aims to create awareness, stimulate dialogue and critical thinking on planning issues unique to iwi, hapu, and whanau Maori.
