National Emergency Management Conference 2021 | Hui Taumata o Te Uepū Whakahaere Haumaru

The National Emergency Management Conference will be held on 25-27 May at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa in Wellington, and will include the Conference Dinner on the evening of 26 May. This year's theme is 'Building Safe and Resilient Communities: The Future of the Emergency Management System'.

We’ve already secured a range of topline speakers, including the Hon Kiritapu Allan - Minister for Emergency Management, Dr Ashley Bloomfield - Director General of Health, Dame Juliet Gerrard - Prime Minister’s Chief Science Advisor, and all members of the Emergency Services Leadership Board.

DAY ONE will be dedicated to providing a platform for Māori and indigenous perspectives on emergency management – a theme that will carry through the rest of the conference.

DAYS TWO AND THREE will build on the first day through plenary and breakout sessions, in which we’ll explore how we work together – through partnerships, co-creation, and collective effort, across a broad range of organisations, sectors, and communities – to support improved emergency management outcomes for individuals and communities. 

We’re also looking forward to Emergency Management Awards Dinner on the evening of the 26 May. Information on the Awards criteria and details on how to enter is available here.    

Registrations for the conference will open soon.
