Navigating Our Future Conference: Leaders’ Dialogue

Navigating Our Future Conference: Leaders’ Dialogue and Political Update

As pre-election positioning heats up and the environment has emerged as a key issue, the Leaders’ Dialogue at EDS’s annual conference next week will be an opportunity to interrogate the main parties. What are their respective positions on RMA reform; on offshore extractive industries; on New Zealand’s biodiversity crisis; and on housing and urban sprawl?

Gary Taylor will moderate a discussion on Wednesday 6 August at 5pm featuring:
Maggie Barry, National Party Chairperson of the Local Government and Environment Committee
Hon David Parker, Deputy Leader of the Labour Party
Te Ururoa Flavell, Co-leader of the Māori Party
Dr Russel Norman, Co-leader of the Green Party
Rt Hon Winston Peters, Leader of New Zealand First
and audience participation will be on offer.

Also hear Hon Dr Nick Smith (Thursday 7 August, 11am) make some new announcements, and outline what we might expect from a third term of a National-led government in the conservation portfolio. Will National be moving into full-blown Oceans Reform as advocated by EDS?
