EIANZ Annual Conference

2017 Annual Conference

EIANZ's 2017 Annual Conference will be held on Monday 30 and Tuesday 31 October 2017 in Wellington, New Zealand with a welcome function on 29 October and field trips scheduled for 1 November. The theme for the 2017 conference is Tu Kaha: Stand Tall, Fronting up with wicked solutions.

Our environmental work is increasingly confronted by wicked problems: those that seem difficult or impossible to solve because of incomplete data; complex and contradictory factors; and the risk of unforeseen consequences.

This conference will focus on wicked solutions: those solutions that are innovative, collaborative, and multi-disciplinary; that take approaches that can be shared across disciplines; and use tools and techniques that apply in many different environments.

It is time to stand tall, stand together and front up with wicked solutions to ensure that we, as environmental professionals, are leading by example and doing our part to achieve excellence in environmental practice.
