A New World in Wood
Venue: Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa
Date: Wednesday 21 March 2012
The ForestWood 2012 Conference is entitled "A New World in Wood":
- The first theme is "the new world in which we live" and will traverse the unfolding political, scientific and financial factors that influence our business operations.
- The second session will emphasis "why new forests and wood product technologies are so important for the sector to contribute fully to NZ's environmental, social and economic well being". While on the topic of the nation's well being, the industry will unveil its strategy to grow the sector, both domestically and internationally and consider approaches undertaken elsewhere.
- The third session is all about "Seismic Shifts". Shifts in new energy, in new technology and in emerging market expectations. This session will be complemented with a closing focus on government's potential to facilitate industry growth via new policy leadership such as national forest policy, genetically modified organisms, bio-energy and timber procurement.
