River Talk – from Thursday 5th to Saturday 7th

Watersheds and Responsible Governance

A COLLABORATION ON WATER & THE WATERWAYS OF LIFE

AIM:
RESPONSE and Waterscape, in discussion with Ngati Raukawa representatives, are bringing together people with different interests in water from Aotearoa-NZ, and from the Pacific region. The ‘assembly’ will draw on diversity of cultural, historical, scientific, economic, technological and artistic ways of relating to and managing rivers and waterways, locally and globally. Knowledge about water will be shared, and based on holistic understandings of rivers as veins of the earth’s living ecosystems. The symposium is to contribute to integrative approaches for the health of waterways. Considerations and strategic planning will be cognizant of tangata whenua and indigenous knowledge and aspirations for governance of watersheds.

DATES:
November 5th (evening) to 7th – (mid afternoon) at Tatum Park, Levin.
