On behalf of the New Zealand Chapter of the Environment Institute of Australia and New Zealand (EIANZ), the conference organising committee extends a very warm welcome to Wellington, New Zealand for the 2010 EIANZ conference.

The title of the conference is “From Discovery to Delivery: Science, Policy, Leadership and Action”.  These are the four elements which together, are essential for sound environmental management.
Because 2010 is the International Year for Biodiversity, many of the conference papers will focus on this particular aspect of environmental management.

The conference streams and topics are designed to appeal to a wide range of disciplines: - ecologists, economists, local and central government policy analysts, urban designers, community development specialists, business leaders and industry representatives.  Topics will include “wicked” environmental problems; putting a value on ecosystems; business leadership; assessing and monitoring sustainability; motivating communities to sustained action; and urban and rural environments that protect the natural environment and foster biodiversity.

Wellington is the vibrant political and cultural capital of New Zealand - and our conference venue, Te Papa Tongarewa – The Museum of New Zealand, is on the internationally acclaimed waterfront, in the very heart of the city and entertainment area. The Wellington region has a huge diversity of environments including off-shore and mainland wildlife sanctuary islands, farming and forestry, wetlands, wind-farms and green buildings. The wide variety of field trips will provide the opportunity to see some hands-on, cutting edge responses to environmental issues.

October is a great time to visit New Zealand. Wellington’s central location affords easy access to the rest of the country – north for thermal attractions and fishing, south for vineyards, whale watching, lakes and the alpine district (the Southern Alps).

We are looking forward to welcoming you to our wonderful city for what we are sure will be one of the best EIANZ conferences yet.

Dianne Buchan,
Chair of the Conference Organising Committee
