Sneak Peek of the Conference Programme

The conference planning committee has had the pleasure of corresponding with a range of thoughtful and thought-provoking speakers whose work fits with our conference theme.  We look forward to announcing the lineup soon.

In the meantime, here's a look at how the plenary sessions are developing. We've based the plenaries on the four conference streams, which are versatile enough to capture a wide range of work (as the abstracts are already beginning to show!).

Here's what's taken shape:

  • Connections for knowledge - toitū te maramatanga
    Housing and Public Health
  • Connection to place & environment - toitū te whenua
    Panel: Water
  • Connection to people & communities - toitū te tangata
    Indigenous Leadership and Public Health
  • Connections for wellbeing - toitū te ora
    The Politics of Wellbeing

More to come.

Spotlight: Conference Sponsor - Te Pūtahitanga

Massive thanks to our Silver Sponsor, Te Pūtahitanga o Te Waipounamu - the Whānau Ora Commissioning Agency for the South Island.

Te Pūtahitanga is a partnership between the nine Iwi of Te Waipounamu: Ngāi Tahu, Ngāti Apa ki te Rā Tō, Ngāti Tama, Ngāti Kuia, Ngāti Koata, Te Ati Awa, Ngāti Toa Rangatira, Rangitāne and Ngāti Rarua.

Over the next three years, they will invest up to $15 million in bold approaches to building sustainable whānau capability. They believe in flax roots innovation and whānau writing their own futures. They have the backing if you’ve got the heart.
