NZPI 2022 Conference : ‘Hīkina te Mānuka – Rise Up to the Challenges’


We are pleased to announce registrations for NZPI 2022 Conference ‘Hīkina te Mānuka – Rise Up to the Challenges’ are now open!

As we plan for our future, we face numerous challenges common to communities elsewhere in New Zealand and overseas. The conference will consider how we best to rise up to the challenges, whether past, present or new, that we face in our environment, for our founding and increasingly diverse communities and future generations in ways which meet our common values and different needs. It will explore the role that planners and policy-makers play in identifying how we can achieve transformative change, consider what factors are fundamental to making that a success and whether we have the knowledge and skills necessary. This conference will challenge planners and policy makers to fully understand what is at stake within New Zealand, the Pacific and globally.

Will you hīkina te mānuka?
Will you rise up to the challenges?
