NZCS 2023

Conference 2023 Announcement 4

Welcome to the 2023 New Zealand Coastal Society Conference in Wellington!


The New Zealand Coastal Society Conference is your annual opportunity to share knowledge across a range of coastal management topics and meet with peers from around New Zealand.

The 2023 conference theme "The Winds (and Waves) of Change" is intended to spark discussion around forthcoming changes in coastal management across in New Zealand, both currently and in the future. With Wellington being home to central government we can expect many of the changes in terms of our response mechanisms and legislative guidance to coastal management issues to be directed from the windy city.

The Wellington region holds examples of both the future direction of coastal management and the challenges of implementing change. The 2023 New Zealand Coastal Society Conference presents us with an opportunity to discuss the lessons learnt and contemplate the changes and challenges in front of us from work being undertaken around the country.

Our conference is being held at the Rydges Hotel in the heart of Wellington's CBD.
