Who has rights to water? Are the standards of water quality set too low? Can we have it all – clean water, dairy farming and the 100% Pure brand that drives tourism?
Bruce Wills is the former President of Federated Farmers: “water is our number one issue”; Tahu Potiki is a former chief executive of Ngai Tahu and current Otakou representative to Te Runanga o Ngai Tahu; Rod Oram is an economist, journalist and media commentator.
Please note the following changes from the original festival programme:
- CHANGE OF VENUE – the Queenstown panel now takes place at The Rees Hotel on Frankton Road
- CHANGE OF SPEAKER – Tahu Potiki replaces Moana Jackson who has withdrawn due to unforseen circumstances.
