The ground is at the heart of planning. When we build, we must break ground. In a figurative sense, planners must constantly break new ground by adopting new technologies and fresh approaches to planning practice. 

This year’s NZPI Conference, Breaking New Ground, picks up on these themes by looking at new methods influencing professional practice, as well as planning for both growth and decline.  Breaking New Ground will be hosted in Tauranga, a key urban hub located within the thriving regional economy of the Bay of Plenty.  Such economic growth does not come without its challenges, and the conference will focus on the pressures of growth and development on our natural environment.

We want to hear from all planners and those involved in planning from across the country and beyond, from planners just starting out to those in the twilight of their career, and everyone between.

Breaking New Ground is taking place at Baypark Arena, Tauranga - March 21-23, 2018

Join NZILA to present fresh perspectives, champion opportunities, and spotlight design solutions that will enhance the urban landscape: whether your city is by the water, or in the shadow of a mountain or volcano; surrounded by pristine landscapes or steeped in centuries of human history.

The 2018 NZILA Firth conference will focus on water and ecologies; culture and community; spaces and places; and movement as we seek to define the elements that are necessary, possible and inspirational for our cities today, and in the future.

Collaboration and multi-disciplinary teams provide the rich multi-faceted experiences that are the hallmark of successful urban environments. We welcome your unique contribution as we explore the creative thinking and innovative solutions that will not simply provide practical civic and public infrastructure, but also inspire urban dwellers and visitors now and for years to come and create civic places people love.
