Connections in nature are abundant and vital, as our connections with nature and with each other.

This year we are trialling something new; we are providing three hui around the Bay of Plenty region in the hopes to provide the regional environment network with more learning and networking opportunities right on your back doorstep, but feel free to travel to the other hui as well!

This hui in Whakatāne is the final hui in the series, and follows the Katikati hui which is on Saturday 8th June and the Rotorua hui on Saturday 15th June.

We have a great line up of top-notch speakers including:

Helen Stewart, General Manager at Volunteer Bay of Plenty

Helen will talk about how to attract and lead volunteers, keep them coming back for more and the importance of rewarding and recognising your volunteers. How ready are you to step up into the hand, heart and head world of volunteering?

Lisa Eve & Rebecca MacKay, Waste Zero Whakatāne

Lisa and Rebecca will talk about community engagement using social media and leveraging local action off national/international profile towards a Waste Zero Whakatāne.

Toi Iti from Ngai Tūhoe me Te Arawa nga Iwi

Toi will MC the hui and provide a korero on Matauranga Maori and importance of kotahitanga between care groups, iwi and agencies.
