The Crown Property Forum 2019

22 March 2019

“Whatungarongaro te tangata, toitū te whenua – people come and go, but the land remains”

Land Information New Zealand’s Crown Property forum is becoming the go-to event in the Crown property and land management calendar. Into its 4th year, the 2019 forum will be held at Te Papa Museum on April 10th 2019 from 8:30am-4:30pm.

This year’s theme is, Whatungarongaro te tangata, toitū te whenua – people come and go, but the land remains.

“We are facing huge environmental challenges and rapid changes to our eco-system from climate change, land erosion and water resilience. Our response to these changes is vital to the land’s future viability and sustainability”, says Jerome Sheppard, Deputy Chief Executive Crown Property at LINZ.

“The forum will explore future-focused land management strategies and discuss how we can work in partnership to ensure Crown land thrives both now and in the future.

“A key focus will also be on how we best use the Crown estate to support a prosperous economy, supporting areas such as tourism, housing, farming and major infrastructure projects.”

Hear from speakers across a range of organisations and perspectives, about their successes and frustrations and how working together we can make a real difference to New Zealanders.

Attendees can put forward their own ideas, ask questions and seek help with the challenges they are facing.

“We are expecting around 160 delegates, from the private and public sector, gathering together to talk about a number of emerging issues in land management,” adds Mr Sheppard.

“The intention of the forum is to create a platform for sharing knowledge, connecting with others and keeping up-to-date with what’s going on in the sector.

“We hope to generate new ideas about how attendees can work with each other through building relationships with other organisations. The forum is designed to be the start of lasting collaborations.”
