PRELIMINARY PROGRAM RELEASED!
Reach the Power of Global Perspectives and Connections, to help solve local problems
In light of the COVID-19 health crisis and to prioritise the well-being and safety of our attendees, community, and members, we are excited to announce our virtual 2020 conference experience. For the first time in ALGA’s history, our major conference will create a new immersive online experience: launching conveniently our inaugural New Zealand Land & Groundwater Conference alongside EcoForum 2020 which will take place over three days of 14, 16 & 18 September 2020.
The New Zealand Land & Groundwater Conference supports NZ’s network of contaminated land professionals, and those in allied sectors, to exchange ideas, highlight challenges and advance solutions in the sector. The event will help ensure you remain up to date with the latest developments affecting the sector as well as strengthening your professional skills and networks.
This is the new frontier!
You will have an opportunity to hear the latest developments in the assessment and management of asbestos risks, hearing perspectives from analysts, regulators, lawyers and consultants. This will include updates on the NZ regulatory scheme, the challenges facing SQEPs and the NZ Guidelines for Assessing and Managing Asbestos in Soil.
The conference will also examine advances in contamination risk assessment processes from the catchment scale to the microscopic scale, as well as an examination of mine waste management.
Remediation activities will also be examined through a range of perspectives with a focus on the novel and sustainable and incorporating a SuRF view of the world of remediation.
During lunch, the Ministry for Environment will provide an update of developments on the RMA and Contaminated Land Management Guidance.
Finally, both a Closed Regulators Forum and a Closed CEnvP Forum will be convened to facilitate updates and discussion of shared interests.
A Vision for a Cleaner Future
