This year’s theme

The kaupapa for this year’s conference is ‘He Waimāreparepa‘ – creating tomorrow for our mokopuna through ripples in the water.Even the lightest touch to the waters’ 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.
