Recreation Conference


With Aotearoa/New Zealand currently sitting at the red traffic light setting (from 23 Jan 2022), Recreation Aotearoa have made the regrettable but necessary decision to postpone the February Recreation Conference to 23 - 25 November 2022. The conference venue for November will still be the Rutherford Hotel in Nelson. 

Te ao hurihuri – The changing world

Join us in Whakatū/Nelson 23 - 25 November 2022 for the Aotearoa's flagship hui for recreation professionals.

As the world shifts and changes, so does recreation.

Recreation Conference will look to the future and arm you with knowledge and understanding of what the changing world may hold for our industry and our communities.

The conference will provide insight and opportunity for reflection on the key issues and developments affecting our industry. Themes include:

  • Weaving Mātauranga Māori with scientific knowledge for transformation  
  • Climate change - Beyond sustainability
  • Co-design - Our new norm
  • Rangatahi engagement and participation

Delegates will leave the conference feeling invigorated and inspired, equipped with new ideas, connections, and strategies to adapt in an ever-changing environment.

Registration coming soon!are now open!
