Upcoming NZ Rivers Group Events
Living with Urban Rivers
8 – 10 November, in Whakatū | Nelson
Our theme for this year is Living with Urban Rivers. Over the last few years, we have witnessed many devastating floods throughout Aotearoa | New Zealand and across the globe. Many of our urban areas have been hit hard, particularly in the most recent events. This year’s conference will hear from some of those who have responded to these events and help us understand what lessons can be learnt. We also plan to build on last year’s theme of “Making room for rivers” by exploring ideas around how we can live more easily with our rivers in the face of growing pressure for more houses. You will also be able to share your stories from living and working with our urban rivers.
