Event description

Description

How do we restore the most fundamental treasures of our country – our land and water – while also producing economic value from those same treasures?

Be part of the solution at the third annual symposium of the Our Land and Water National Science Challenge (Toitū te Whenua, Toiora te Wai).

The Our Land and Water Symposium will feature dynamic panel discussions, live Q&As, inspiring speakers, and quick-fire updates on the science and research being done by Our Land and Water’s partner organisations.

Join an audience of researchers, regional and industry bodies, agribusiness, Māori entities, land owners, food producers, banks, farms consultants and NGOs, and participate in live Q&As with people at the forefront of transforming primary production in Aotearoa.


Programme

The draft programme will be released in July. Topics to be covered include:

  • How can scientists help land owners diversify farming systems to better suit their land?

  • Can we pick Aotearoa’s next billion-dollar food and fibre industries?

  • What’s next for the New Zealand food story?

  • How can individuals transform deeply rooted systems?

  • How do we harness the power of collaboration to build trust and make better decisions?
