Seaweek Wins International Award
NZAEE's flagship marine event, Seaweek, was recently recognised in the prestigious IAP2 (International Association for Public Participation) Core Values Awards.
NZAEE Seaweek received the Highly Commended award in the environment category of the 2017 Australasian awards, entered by IAP2 ambassador and NZAEE life member.
IAP2 is a strongly values-based organisation where the rights of people to have a say in decisions which affect them are paramount.
Its core values include seeking public input to designing engagement, defining engagement methods and levels of influence and promoting sustainable decisions by recognising and communicating the needs of everyone involved. The way Seaweek is run embraces these values.
