ECO Annual Conference: Resilient Environment, Resilient Communities

Auckland - 1-3 July

Friday, the first day of the Conference, is to be in the excellent Jubilee Hall, Parnell Community Building, close to downtown Auckland. From there we will bus to Carey Park Camp on Henderson Valley Road at the edge of the Waitakere Ranges, for the Saturday and Sunday programme.

The theme of the Conference reflects the need to look at developments strengthening or damaging New Zealand’s resilience in this rapidly changing world. The programme will cover, as appropriate in Election Year, current directions in protecting the things New Zealanders value and prosper from – such as our treasured environment with its clean water and healthy soils, its biodiversity and special landscapes, – such as our participative democracy and access to information, – such as our opportunities to build a sustainable and equitable economy.

More details about the conference, including times, enrolment etc will be available on our website soon.
