CETANZ Conference 2023

A huge thank you to those who attended the 2023 CETANZ conference in Kirikiriroa Hamilton.

The post-conference survey results were overwhelming positive, we thank all those who provided their feedback.

This year’s conference theme represented the idea of Aukaha Resilience through the Kauri tree. The Kauri tree is a tree that emanates strength. It demonstrates the power of evolution and the ability of living things to adapt to unexpected challenges. Before European settlers arrived in New Zealand the Kauri tree was used to craft waka. Aukaha comes from a traditional Kāi Tahu tauparapara or poetic chant, recited by our ancestors as they tightened the lashings of their waka before setting out on a journey. It is about uniting and binding together to meet the challenges

The civil industry not only ensures the resilience of our infrastructure, but also provides a pathway for people to develop personal resilience and adaptability to change.
