• Spent the evening at the CASANZ Innivation and Excellence in Air Quality Awards talking about air quality standards to some cool and committed, scientists, engineers, environmental health consultants and professionals in Queenstown! Here’s the view heading up to the event venue #breathtaking

  • Robyn Rauna and Victor Goldsmith investigates the opportunity around honey production in Mexico and sharing business practices and matauranga #indigenousexchange #culturaltradewinds #relationships
  • Had the pleasure of being apart of the closing ceremony for a tā Moko exhibition held at the National Art Gallery in Canberra. This picture was taken of Tāwhiao on his way to England and during the stopover in Sydney. It is apart of a collections of photographs and watercolour prints held partly in Australia. There are some Goldie portraits as well - truly magnificent and wonderful insight to yesteryear #blessed
  • Spoke at the Infrastructure NZ conference theme was Building Nations. I set out the importance of Central and Local Government working together to initiate smart regional growth that integrated Master Spatial planning, community development, social and environmental wellbeing, cultural diversity, urban growth and intensification alongside a long term infrastructure investment strategy. #longtermthinking #transformativeoutcomes #wellbeingfocus
  • Three of our resilience Ministers Hon James Shaw, Hon Peeni Henare. Myself and deputy chair John Scott of ECan formally recognising the near completion of a 10year flood protection project along the Waimakariri river. This is a braided river and the water engineer Ian Heslop summed it up well “on a good day she is wonderful on a bad day she terrifies me”. Those familiar with the braided river system in the Canterbury plains will understand the changing nature of these rivers. So pleased we got to recognise the foresight and planning that went into making the greater Christchurch region safer from the prospect of large scale flooding! #resilience #startnow #forthefuture
  • Giving a speech to the LGNZ Annual Conference themed “Riding the Wave of Localism”. I was able to share the range of exemplars across the country re: social procurement, integrated planning, biodiversity and community leadership, civil defence and crisis response to demonstrate that Councils are already working differently to activate community wellbeing. We central and local government with community, Iwi and other partners can collaborate to make this approach “the norm” rather than the exception.
  • At Rehua Marae, Christchurch with the PM launching Oranga Marae to enable planning, refurbishment, feasibility studies and disaster preparedness planning. We have increased funding availability of $12m over four years from Wellbeing Budget 2019. It’s pleasing to see Marae, hapū and Iwi engaging in CDEM responses. Lots of learning from Rena, Christchurch and Kaukoura quakes, Matata debris and flood disaster, and Fires in Whakatū. engaging Maori in first response can improve community safety and resilience as well as strengthening social cohesion.
