Invitation to Forum 2020
We invite you to join us in Nelson for National's annual Bluegreens Forum in this critical 2020 Election year.
The weekend is an opportunity to engage with our MPs and New Zealand's leading environmental organisations on how we can better deliver on our Bluegreens vision of a prosperous and clean, green country.
Buy tickets now, bring your ideas, energy, togs and sunscreen for a weekend of fun politics.
See you in Nelson,
Scott and Chris
Invitation to Nelson
Nelson will be going all out to ensure the Bluegreens Forum 2020 is engaging, informative and fun.
Nelson is the largest fishing port in Australasia and the capital of New Zealand's growing aquaculture industry. A key policy discussion on Saturday is how we better protect our massive oceans while enabling growth of our blue economy.
Sunday's fieldtrip to visit the Abel Tasman is an opportunity to enjoy New Zealand's smallest national park at the premium time of year. You will also get to experience the work of Project Janszoon, New Zealand's largest public/private conservation project.
I also look forward to welcoming you to my home for our Saturday night BBQ that will feature the best of Nelson's fish and horticultural products including my 'True Blue Home Brew' (for the brave!)
