Our kaupapa for this year’s conference

‘He Waimāreparepa’ – creating tomorrow for our mokopuna through ripples in the water.

Even the lightest touch to the water’s surface creates far-reaching ripples. What will our mokopuna inherit as a result of our efforts to protect our wai and taonga?

He Waimāreparepa looks to the future as we bring together kaikōrero to explore how an intergenerational lens casts a stone into the water and reflects the way we engage with our indigenous fisheries and their habitat.

Speaker announcements to come

We have a great line-up of kaikōrero announcements to come. In the meantime, tickets are limited so register now to secure your place.
