I’ve been asked to speak at some awesome events over the next little while. Would be awesome to see you there.
Values Party 40th Birthday
This year marks the fortieth birthday of the Values Party. The first green party was born at Victoria University of Wellington in 1972 and fought in five elections.
To mark the occasion the Green Party is hosting a birthday party at their AGM on Friday 1 June. It looks like it is going to be a really interesting day with Jeanette Fitzsimons, Norman Smith, and other interesting Values/Green figures speaking.
Claire Browning is launching her book, Beyond Today and after dinner Christine Dann — a longtime Values/Green member and academic — speaks about then and now, after which I am speaking about now and the future.

Face up to the future: Forest and Bird Conference
The environment underpins everything in New Zealand. Without a clean and healthy environment we don’t have a future. Forest and Bird’s 2012 conference challenges us to Face Up to the Future and get real about what we need to do to protect Aotearoa. What better way to kick off the conference than by showcasing some of the most dedicated young conservationists in New Zealand.
Te Radar will be hosting the panel discussion between six youths who are the future of conservation in New Zealand. I’m super excited to be speaking on the panel with so many cool people.
Students can come along to the session for free, just bring ID.
What: The nature of tomorrow: Youth Panel at the Forest and Bird Face Up to the future conference
When: 7:00–8:30 PM Friday 15 June 2012
Where: Te Papa, Wellington
Who: Te Radar, Sarah Hall, Jackson Wood, Tarsh Turner, Kimberley Collins, Rapihana Hawaikirangi, Bridget White
