ECO conferences are always enjoyable and stimulating, full with good company and speakers who are leaders in their field.  You will go home full with ideas, energy and action-points: and good healthy food too.   Registrations costs are reasonable, and the full programme will be up on our conference page soon.  Check out the Conference page on the website for details of the conference.  You can register now here.

Members of ECO groups, Friends of ECO and anyone interested are all welcome to attend.  Discounts apply to those who are Friends, or members of ECO member groups, and those on lower incomes.  Become a Friend of ECO and support our work and receive discounted entry to conference. 

Registration is low cost thanks to support from DOC, MPI and Hawke's Bay Regional Council.

Our conference sessions include discussion on enhanced ecosystem- and place-based fisheries and marine management and how the public can be better included.

We’ll also discuss how we can ramp up work and improve networks to protect the environment from risks from weeds, pathogens, predators and marine invasive species.  

Community action and policy development work to protect native species and ecosystems, climate change law and action, and regional, local and national community efforts on better land use, improved water management and kaitiakitanga of ecosystems, are all part of the programme. 

Minister Stuart Nash will be talking with us about better management of New Zealand fisheries.  Minister David Parker is speaking to us on the Friday.

Hapu and iwi, community groups, land-based producers and many others are on the programme.

Come along.  We’ll also discuss how we change norms of land use, our goals as a society, and the things we need to do and change. 

Members of ECO groups, Friends of ECO and anyone interested are all welcome to attend.
The venue for the conference is the Pukemokimoki Marae in Napier.
