CONFERENCE VENUE | MASSEY UNIVERSITY

Massey University, Palmerston North

ABOUT DEVNET2020

At the 2020 DevNet Conference we will explore contemporary development matters, by asking the questions:

  • Why does development matter and how?
  • How can we achieve the Sustainable Development Goals?
  • How can we stop climate destruction while also reducing poverty and inequality?
  • What are Indigenous perspectives on social change?
  • Should we abandon the ‘development project’ and embrace an alternative way of viewing human and planetary life?

If you care about the wellbeing of people in Aotearoa and around the world and about the Earth we live on, Development Matters is The Conference for you.

🔜 There’s 1 week to go before Session Proposals for DevNet 2020 close. What are the burning issues/topics/themes you’d like to see covered at the conference? Do you have students doing research on fascinating topics that you’d like to see addressed at the conference?

Please get your ideas in this week (there’s a very simple template on the website devnet.org.nz/devnet2020), whether you’d like to organise a panel to debate policy like ‘Pacific Reset’, get a range of government, academic and NGO folk to discuss ‘Health Security in the Pacific’ in light of Covid19, or whether you want to shoulder tap some other researchers working on a shared topic like ‘Resilience in the face of environmental change’ to come and talk in a session.
