Connecting Land and Science: Highlights from the National Science Challenge Symposiums

Sasha, our Geoscientist recently attended two of the National Science Challenge symposiums in Wellington. These symposiums reported on collaborative research throughout New Zealand over the last ten and eight years respectively.

1) Te Tai Whanake: Growing a stronger, more resilient Aotearoa Research focused on understanding hazard and risk, resilience, and extreme weather.

See the website Kia manawaroa – Ngā Ākina o Te Ao Tūroa – Accelerating our resilience to natural hazards for their research.

2) He Manawa Piharau Symposium 2024, (hosted by Our Land and Water) Research of this challenge was based on current land uses and the resulting impacts on the environment.

We value attending these forums - where we can meet with our peers and collaborators. These events keep us up to date with current research and understanding about a range of areas that are critical to the Geopark. “Many of the topics covered at these symposiums relate to the stories we tell and knowledge we share - of the land and people who live here and the interconnected relationships we have with our whenua” – Sasha
