We’ve got a freshwater crisis on our hands. It appears we can’t have it all – clean water, high volume dairy farming, the 100% Pure brand that drives our tourism industry, along with equitable settlements of Treaty rights.
In this Aspiring Conversations session, leading NZ water scientist Mike Joy is joined by Ngai Tahu kaumatua Sir Tipene O’Regan and by artist, poet and commentator Greg O’Brien, as they bring their different viewpoints to bear on these vexed issues.
Our Paper Plus pop-up shop will have copies of Mike’s two books: Polluted Inheritance and Mountains to Sea – Solving New Zealand’s Freshwater Crisis. And take a look through our art exhibition Wai / Water / Wanaka which explores artists’ insights into our rivers, lakes and wetlands.
