UC Connect: Freshwater new horizons and fresh challenges

29/09/2021 at 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

In this upcoming public talk, Associate Professor Te Maire Tau will discuss the importance of freshwater as a taonga of Ngāi Tahu, and examine the way the governments have regulated this crucial natural resource over the past 150 years.

He will cover recent developments in environmental and resource management reform and look at how freshwater might be regulated in the future.

Associate Professor Tau will be joined by former Attorney-General, the Hon Chris Finlayson QC, who has recently published a book about Treaty settlements and the Crown-Māori Relationship. The presenters will also explore the ever-evolving Treaty relationship between the Crown and Māori, as we approach New Zealand’s bicentenary in 2040.
