Our Freshwater Future

August 20 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

Rising star Lan Pham’s background is in Freshwater Ecology (MSc) with 15 years working on grass-roots freshwater restoration projects.

Lan Pham’s background is in Freshwater Ecology (MSc) where it was Aotearoa’s quirky endangered native fish that first got her involved in tricky intergenerational issues like freshwater pollution and climate change. Over the last 15 years Lan has worked with community groups, schools, farmers, iwi and government agencies across Southland, Otago and Canterbury on grass-roots freshwater restoration projects,  as a freshwater ranger for DoC and as founder and trustee of Working Waters Trust.

Lan has served the last 6 years in Local Government as a Regional Councillor on Environment Canterbury from 2016 – 2022 where she championed action for nature, climate and people. Her initial election campaign for Environment Canterbury in 2016 was launched while on a year-long placement on Raoul Island in the Kermadecs – a five-day, 1000km boat ride away.

Craig Potton MNZM is an awarded New Zealand photographer, environmentalist, businessman, and publisher.
Talk followed by Q & A.
