Event description
The Cawthron New Zealand River Awards honour individuals & communities that are working hard to improve river health in Aotearoa.

About this event

The Awards will take place on Thursday 25th November 2021 at the Foxglove Bar & Kitchen, 33 Queens Wharf, from 5.30pm onwards. Please note that this is a different venue to that earlier advised.

Professor Jacinta Ruru of University of Otago is our keynote speaker. She will challenge us to think about why rivers should have a voice, the place of freshwater in Māori culture and the proprietorship of freshwater.

Dr Morgan Williams will make a call for action; why we need to step up and where we need to go in response to evidence that two-thirds of our monitored river sites are ecologically impaired.

Awards will be presented to:

• The catchment community that has made the most progress toward river health.

• The 'River Story' that best demonstrates the power of collaboration and community engagement. The profiles of the 2021 'River Story' category finalists can be viewed here. https://www.cawthron.org.nz/new-zealand-river-awards-news

• The River Voice/Reo Mō te Awa - An individual or group that has been an outstanding advocate or communicator about the issues facing New Zealand’s freshwater environments.

The 2021 New Zealand River Awards are proudly brought to you by Cawthron Institute and our generous sponsors including the Ministry for the Environment and the Department of Conservation.
