Ōrākei Enviro Forum

The theme for the Ōrākei Local Board Environ Forum 2021 is Water: Taonga for the future.

Water is a topical issue dear to the hearts of our communities and connected to so much of the work in which we all do for the environment.

This is a free community event that is a great opportunity to acknowledge the contribution of our community volunteers, as well as network and share ideas.

Whilst networking and information-sharing is the focus of the forum, we are delighted to provide an exciting line-up of presenters, including:

Keynote speakers (TBC):

  • Sophie McGuinness from Watercare and Andrew Chin from Healthy Waters Auckland Council.
  • Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei will update us on their plans to reseed Okahu Bay with mussels.
  • Yolanda Thorp, water engineer at Tonkin and Taylor and Chair of Waiatarua Reserve, will be speaking about engineered wetlands.
  • Dr Robyn Simcock, Ecologist and Soil Scientist at Landcare Research and member of Hapua Thrive, will share about the effective and sustainable water usage in her own home and garden.

We will also be announcing the Ōrākei Local Board 2021 Enviro Award recipient.

Presentations will be followed by a chance to network and mingle with friends over nibbles and a cash bar, as well as a view, thought-provoking displays by many key environmental groups in the area showcasing the amazing work that they do.

This event is only available to those who live, volunteer or work in the environmental field, within the Ōrākei Local Board area. 

Please RSVP as seats are limited and it's required for catering purposes.
