Recreation Conference

Tēnā koutou e ngā rau awa o ngā waka o te motu 

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

The conference will reflect Te Whai Oranga, our 2020 - 2025 strategy, and focus on learnings from both Mana Whenua and Te Titiri world views and knowledge.  

We will come together in the Papanoho/The Peoples Hub to share, learn and grow. The Papanoho was developed based on feedback from our members who are seeking more bi-cultural, more interactive learning and less time in traditional presentations.

Tirohanga Our Vision

Manaaki taiao, manaaki hapori, ko tenei te whai oranga
Care for the environment, care for our communities.
This is the pursuit of wellbeing.

Our Pou/Streams

  1. Oranga Taiao – Thriving Environments
  2. Oranga Hapori – Thriving Communities

The vision and themes have been developed by our bi-cultural Steering Group made up of local Iwi and Recreation Aotearoa members of Te Tai Ihu/Top of the South Island.

We are also planning streams and forums in the topics of rangatahi, accessibility, and provisional local authorities.

Registration coming soon.
