Event description

Description

In April the Public Communication of Science and Technology Conference (PCST 2018) is bringing scholars and practitioners of science communication and public engagement to New Zealand from all around the world.

Please join us the following week to decompress, expand your ideas, and build deeper connections with other colleagues in this field. This event is open to all, including Science Technology and Society (STS) and other public engagement scholars and practitioners who are not intending on joining the PCST conference. The retreat programme will be a mix of structured sessions and flexible time for networking and informal discussion. The agenda will evolve based on the participants' preferences (including the many excellent suggestions given on the expression of interest form in December 2017).

Where is the retreat?

The retreat will take place from the evening of Monday, April 9, until lunch on Thursday, April 12, at the beautiful Waihōanga Centre, about an hour north of Wellington.

What's included?

The retreat is catered and bunkroom accomodation is provided.

How do I get there?

The nearest international airport is Wellington Airport (about an hour by car). The nearest local airport is Kapiti Airport (about 30 minutes by car). Palmerston North airport is also about an hour by car.

There is a train service from Wellington to Waikanae or Otaki stations, the closest rail stations to the retreat. Both are about 15 minutes by car or taxi from Waihōanga .

The closest bus stop is Otaki, about 20 minutes away by car.

Closer to the time we will endeavour to connect people car sharing from Wellington up to Otaki, and can arrange return shuttles from the station.
