Diverse coastal environments in a time of change

This is the theme of our 2017 conference which will be held in and around Christchurch.

The main conference will be held Wed-Fri 22-24 March. On the evening of the Wednesday there will be a Free Community Coastal Seminar and concurrently a Free Weaving Workshop. On the Thursday night we’ll have our conference dinner during which the winners of our Restoration Awards and the succesful applicant of our Student Award will be announced.

There will be two additional fieldtrips:

Saturday 25 March: Kaitorete Spit and Banks Peninsula (south)

There is not a lot of accommodation within walking distance from the New Brighton venue. Friday, Saturday and Sunday fieldtrips will start from the City Centre, so you can choose your accommodation based on this. If you can, support our trust by booking your accommodation through Kiwi Karma.

To bus in the most direct way from the city centre to New Brighton take the yellow line. Buses 60 and 135 also go there. Do make sure you travel in the right direction as some of the buses also go in the opposite direction.
