NZPI CONFERENCE | Call for Abstracts

19 July 2017



The 2018 Planning Conference seeks speakers who are inspired by breaking new ground.

The ground is at the heart of planning. When we build, we must break ground. In a figurative sense, planners must constantly break new ground by adopting new technologies and fresh approaches to planning practice.

This year’s NZPI Conference, BreakingNew Ground, picks up on these themes by looking at new methods influencing professional practice, as well as planning for both growth and decline. Breaking New Ground will be hosted in Tauranga, a key urban hub located within the thriving regional economy of the Bay of Plenty. Such economic growth does not come without its challenges, and the conference will focus on the pressures of growth and development on our natural environment.

We want to hear from all planners and those involved in planning from across the country and beyond, from planners just starting out to those in the twilight of their career, and everyone between.

Abstracts must be submitted to vanessa.white@planning.org.nz by Thursday 31 August, 2017.

Breaking New Ground is taking place at Baypark Arena, Tauranga - March 21-23, 2018
