Upcoming EDS Events
Pre-election political forum
The Environmental Defence Society (EDS) and the Association for Resource Management Professionals (RMLA) have arranged a political forum to explore the environment, conservation and climate change policies of the main political parties.
Leading into the election, this event will enable invited party representatives to participate in a moderated panel discussion focused on the issues that matter. Expect a deep dive into land, freshwater, oceans and climate change policy.
Moderated by EDS CEO Gary Taylor, confirmed panel participants include Hon David Parker (Labour), Hon Scott Simpson (National), Hon James Shaw (Greens), with invitees from NZ First, Act and the Māori Party to be confirmed.
When: Monday 17 August, 5:00pm – 7:00pm
Where: Simpson Grierson, Level 27, Lumley Tower, Shortland Street, Auckland and available nationally via a livestream.
Registration for both in-person and livestreaming access will be available shortly through the RMLA website and a link on the EDS one. Registrants will be invited to submit questions online that will be reviewed for relevance as the discussion develops.
