Press Release: Intercreate Trust

Representatives of local Taranaki groups including iwi will meet with representatives of ten universities and two New Zealand Research institutes in February 2013. The gathering is for SCANZ 2013: 3rd nature.

The primary aim is to bring together people from Aotearoa and around the world to talk about integrating indigenous knowledge into art, science and technology projects. “This approach is very important to resolving a sustainable future.

Staff of the Institute of Geological and Nuclear Sciences, and the Institute of Environmental and Scientific Research will present.
