Firstly, thank you to those who were able to join us for the NZPI 2021 Conference in Whakatū - Nelson and online. It was a long time coming, and it was fantastic to be able to finally hold the event!

The 2021 conference held in March provided great opportunity to connect with peers and those within the wider planning profession, and provided inspiration and challenge on subjects relevant to critical and current topics.

All recordings of both plenary and breakout stream sessions are available for conference delegates to view through the NZPI 2021 Conference Virtual Hub. In June, all sessions will be added to the Planning On Demand platform.

We hope you take the opportunity to revisit presentations you joined live, as well as view sessions you were unable to attend. You have delegate-only access until June, at which point we will make all conference content available through the NZPI website, On Demand platform.

Hikina te Manuka - Rise Up to the Challenges

NZPI calls on planners and allied professionals and invites them to the 2022 NZPI conference in Otautahi - Christchurch.

As we plan for our future, we face numerous challenges common to communities' elsewhere in New Zealand and overseas. The conference will consider how we best to rise up to the challenges, whether past, present or new, that we face in our environment, for our founding and increasingly diverse communities and future generations in ways which meet our common values and different needs. It will explore the role that planners and policy-makers play in identifying how we can achieve transformative change, consider what factors are fundamental to making that a success and whether we have the knowledge and skills necessary. This conference will challenge planners and policy makers to fully understand what is at stake within New Zealand, the Pacific and globally.
