OUR SESSION SPEAKERS - line-up will be released soon
Within our four conference streams, we will address and consider how planners listen to the many voices and sets of values represented in our increasingly diverse communities throughout New Zealand. How we respect and respond to those multiple voices and values is essential in setting out a vision for the kind of society and environments we wish to plan for. The topic streams address the themes through presentations, panels and workshops that address vision of planning from a national to an individual level, values from how we use space, our natural environment values and social values, and voices from the Mātauranga Māori and health perspectives. Here are some of the key topics we'll be examining
Here and Now - What immediate action can be taken, the climate framework and how it's applied
Looking Forward - What are the critical pillars for forming a long term view
Placemaking & Identity
Spatial Planning - A sector focus, let’s start the strategic planning journey, looking at what NZ 2040 could look like
Planning from a Gendered Perspective - Inclusive infrastructure and planning through an alternative lens
Local & National Vision
Rural Lense - Freshwater, Highly Productive Lands and Biodiversity NPSs, and the urban rural divide - dependencies and conflicts
Urban Focus - The Randerson Review, a challenging way forward, will reform go further?
Co-governance - What does the new piece of legislation need to incorporate/look like taking into account Te Tiriti o Waitangi?
Practical integration of Mātauranga - how do we ensure tikanga is framed and implemented to deliver the outcome we are after.
