EDS events

EDS runs two of the most preeminent environmental conferences in the country. We also hold smaller regional events throughout the year.

We have a well-established reputation for delivering highly topical and thought-provoking conferences that act as a catalyst, delivering valuable insights, momentum for change, and networking opportunities for attendees and sponsors. We draw diverse participants together to galvanise progress towards solving Aotearoa New Zealand’s biggest environmental problems.



EDS Conference 2023: Pivot Point

22 - 24 March, Auckland

We are entering a period of deep change as we transform our economy from carbon-intensive resource exploitation towards a zero-carbon future. This will involve restoring our natural world, rewilding at landscape scale and cleaning up our freshwater systems. At this year’s conference we will challenge whether the traditional concepts of growth across activities such as tourism, agriculture, forestry, and fishing are still fit for the future. How should we measure progress in the next decades? EDS will also profile fresh thinking about oceans, conservation, resource management and adaptation. Central to Pivot Point’s agenda will be how Te Ao Māori and Te Tiriti jurisprudence is evolving across all environmental domains.
