Water is the lifeblood of New Zealand - we use it for tourism and recreation, and it is a large part of our cultural identity and it is also vital to the primary sector. Everything we do has an effect on water quality, and everyone has an opinion on which sector might be causing the problems. Is it humans? Is it cows or sheep? What can be done to ensure a sustainable New Zealand - economically and environmentally? And do we actually have a problem? Come along to hear the conversation and explore the varying ideas and research involved in the ongoing discussion of New Zealand's water quality.

Hosted by Professor of Environmental Planning Iain White, panellists include Green MP Catherine Delahunty, Māori and indigenous legal issues expert Associate Professor Linda Te Aho, indigenous resource management expert Dr Naomi Simmonds, agricultural commentator Professor Jacqueline Rowarth, economist Dr Dan Marsh and Chris Lewis, President of Waikato Federated Farmers.

Held as part of the University of Waikato's Winter Lecture Series, the series brings together experts and advocates from around the region to spark debate and discussion while talking about issues that affect us all.
