4 Reasons Why I Can't Wait for #RecConf18

For you Community Recreation boffins out there, this year's Recreation Conference will be a boon. It's hard to know where to start, but here's a few teasers.

  1. There's the international perspective: Dr Stefan Kannewischer from Switzerland who will be talking about European facilities and communities of the future. Or Jayne Miller from the USA on her experience of turning around parks in multi-cultural communtiies.
  2. There's the national perspective: for example Dr Ihirange Heke talking about Māori leadership frameworks and working with Iwi beyond the Treaty Settlement era.
  3. Or the unique local perpsective: Kataraina Davis on co-designing recreation with Māori and Pasifika communties.
  4. To increase your knowledge and networks there will be workshops, thinktanks and even speed dating on new tools and apps.

Thank goodness I work for NZRA because it means I get to talk to and bring on board so many of the fantastic speakers and their ideas.

See you there, or make sure you have long coffees afterwards with people who do get to go.
