The workshop will be broken up into two sessions. 

The first will feature presentations from MfE directors, managers and subject matter experts with the chance for you to fully participate in a Q&A session.   Session one will run from 10.00am – 12.00pm.   MfE presenters are: Nicola White, Claire Norris, Danielle Kennedy,  and Kate Avery who will talk to the F-gas chapter in the ERP. 

Following lunch and networking, the second session will give us all the chance to do a deep dive on the detail of the presentations. We will reconvene and break into discussion groups to cover elements pertinent to your WasteMINZ sector groups.  These discussions will be held face to face or online via break out rooms. 

To make the most of our time together, we encourage you to read the consultation documents.  Proposed New Zealand Waste Strategy,  and the proposed Emission Reduction Plan
