Event description
School of Environment Research Forum, 2020 Bartrum/Cumberland/Hay Lecture Series

About this Event

The Research Committee in the School of Environment at the University of Auckland is delighted to announce the details of this year’s research forum.

River health is a long-standing issue of significant societal concern in New Zealand. As the Resource Management Act is under review, and expressions of River Rights create new societal and institutional relations to rivers, there is genuine prospect for generative encounters in shaping ‘River Futures in Aotearoa’.

This panel discussion will focus on constructive discussions and contemplations regarding River Futures in Aotearoa – what could this look like, how will it work, what do we have to do to get there, should this be an incremental transition or a radical transformation?

Five key speakers have been tasked to present short provocative, constructive and positive perspectives on this topic:

Gerrard Albert: Chair of Ngā Tāngata Tiaki o Whanganui, the post-settlement governance body for Whanganui Iwi for the purpose of the Whanganui River Settlement

Anne Salmond: Professor of Māori Studies, The University of Auckland

Colleen Brent: Healthy Waterways Team, Auckland Council

Trish Kirkland-Smith: Head of Environmental Partnerships, Fonterra

Mike Joy: Senior Research Fellow, School of Government, Victoria University of Wellington

This will be followed by a discussion session and informal drinks and nibbles.

This event will also be livestreamed here.

PLEASE NOTE: we will accommodate the alert level restrictions which are in place at the time of the event. Should Auckland be at level 2 or higher at this time, then the event will not take place onsite and will be livestreamed only.
