Tēnā koutou katoa | Greetings!

 

The Rivers Group | Manatiaki Kōawa warmly welcome you to their conference to be held in Lower Hutt | Te Awa Kairangi,  from 27 – 29 April 2022. 

The conference theme is Making Room for Rivers. With climate change predicted to bring more extreme floods and changing community values, there is pressure on river managers to look for alternative methods when providing more integrated catchment management. One such aspect is making room for rivers. Our conference this year will explore how to make this concept a reality through a series of invited speakers over 2 days to discuss examples from around the globe, as well as right here in our own backyard. There will also be a chance for you to share your stories through a poster session and an opportunity to get out in the field to see how it might work in the Greater Wellington region.

 

Lower Hutt’s riverside location makes it a great place to visit all year round. Situated in the Hutt Valley, there are plenty of outdoor adventures filled with picturesque walking and cycling trails and expansive coastal views. If outdoors aren’t your thing then there are excellent museums and art galleries, as well as plenty of great coffee shops.
