2016 EIANZ Annual Conference - Foundations for tomorrow

3-4 November 2016
Sofitel Hotel, 249 Turbot Street, Brisbane QLD

The Environment Institute of Australia and New Zealand's 2016 Annual Conference will be held in Brisbane. The Conference is EIANZ's signature event and provides outstanding value to members and other environmental practitioners. It is an excellent opportunity for environmental practitioners to expand their horizons, challenge conventional thinking and network with fellow professionals. It's also a great opportunity to showcase your work and share important lessons with your peers.

This year’s theme is Foundations for Tomorrow. We will explore environmental trends and their influence on the environment industry through to 2050.

The conference will consider the following themes:

  • How legislation has changed to accommodate social / community expectations for the environment
  • Living with the impacts of climate change, including sea level rise, and its influence on the work of environmental practitioners
  • Options to reduce carbon through economic initiatives
  • How the Renewable Energy Target has changed the way we produce and use energy
  • How we prepare the next generation of environmental specialists for tomorrow’s challenges.
