Watch recordings from EDS Conference 2021

Environmental Defence Society (EDS) have released the session recordings of their 2021 Conference, held in Ōtautahi/Christchurch 5-7 August.

As 'Silver Sponsors' of the event, we had a line-up of awesome speakers in back-to-back sessions on Friday.

"Humanity's absolute dependency on the ocean is reflected in
everything we do in Aotearoa New Zealand." - Volker Kuntzsch

Volker Kuntzsch, member of our Governance Group and CEO of Cawthron Institute presented this vision for our oceans and fisheries. Watch the full talk:

At the ‘Transforming our oceans: Conserving 30%, redefining use of 70%’ session, our EBM in action theme leader Chris Cornelisen joined the panel discussing what it'll take to transforming the blue economy. Chris also joined our Building a seaweed sector project researchers Serean Adams (Cawthron) and Nigel Bradley (EnviroStrat) in a panel session and Q&A.

Our Director Julie Hall chaired the panel session on Oceans and Fisheries Reform:

Volker also spoke alongside Rangimarie Hunia (Chair, Te Ohu Kaimoana) and Raewyn Peart (Policy Director, Environmental Defence Society).
