Rotorua to host Maori Forestry Forum


Rotorua to host Maori Forestry Forum

Registrations are now open for ‘Mai i te ngahere oranga - Māori Forestry Forum’ to be held at Waiariki Institute of Technology in Rotorua on Friday 16 August.

With $2 billion in forestry assets that include land, trees and energy options, Māori are set to become key stakeholders in the future of forestry.

This inaugural Māori Forestry Forum will provide a platform for Māori land and forest owners to discuss their experiences, issues and aspirations for Māori forestry in Aotearoa.

Topics include global markets, ownership models, indigenous forestry, multi cropping, research and technology, ecotourism, carbon options and employment.

This is an opportunity for Māori land and forest owners to influence the future direction of Māori forestry.

Rohe-based workshops will be planned to progress the korero from this forum so that a national strategy can be developed to support Māori forestry in the future.

This event is supported by Crown Research Institute Scion, Waiariki Institute of Technology, Federation of Māori Authorities, Te Puni Kōkiri and Te Arawa Primary Sector Inc.

Places are limited so registration is essential. A registration form and agenda is available at www.scionresearch.com/maori-forestry-forum
