Reform in Paradise II will explore how the reforms can be harnessed to support a greening of the economy and better environmental outcomes.

Recently there have been suggestions that we should broaden the “100% Pure New Zealand” tourism brand to market the entire country overseas. If such a move was linked with policies to support a greening of the economy, this could result in positive outcomes for New Zealand’s environment and economy. If we fail to improve our environmental performance then the integrity of that brand will come under increasing scrutiny in our markets.

Speakers will unpack the key elements of a green economy and explore future trends in international markets. Sessions will then critically evaluate the planned changes in environmental management. Workshops for resource management professionals will examine whether the reforms might be better designed to avoid lowering our environmental standards.

The EDS annual conference is now well-established as a high quality and stimulating national event. Reform in Paradise II will be a ‘must attend’ event for all those with an interest in resource use and who want a better future for New Zealand.
