Eric Verstappen Young Professionals Networking

12 noon to 1.30pm

Face-to-face gatherings over a lunch in three centres for students and young professionals (<5 years in service).

This event provides students and early career professionals with an opportunity to network with and ‘pick the brains’ of invited mentors who have been there and done that in the coastal scene. Most invited mentors are in positions that involved recruiting, so they are able to provide insights into what they are looking for in potential coastal employees and to offer a range of career options and choice. The event is also an opportunity to network with people from across the country and at the same early career stage.

 

The event will be held in venues at Auckland, Raglan and Christchurch (See venue details below). Attendees limited to 25 in each region.

 

Auckland - Beca Auditorium  - 21 Pitt Street, Auckland 1010

Raglan - Sunset Motel - 7 Bankart Street, Raglan 3225

Christchurch - WSP office - 12 Moorhouse Avenue, Addington, Christchurch 8011

 

Main Event - "Effects of sea level rise on coastal systems" Webinar

2 to 4pm

This event showcases the forthcoming Coastal News Special Issue on “Effects of sea level rise on coastal systems”. Due to be published in November 2020, the issue will provide an insight as to how our coastal systems have and can be expected to behave in response to past and future sea level rise. The aim is to convey that different coastal systems behave in different ways and that these should be considered by practitioners when addressing planning, management and engineering issues in coastal management. Articles in the issue will cover: Sea Level Projections for New Zealand, Coastal hydrosystems, Estuaries, Sandy beaches, Mixed sand gravel beaches, Coastal cliffs, Maori perspective on environmental change, and Modelling coastal evolution. The webinar will provide the opportunity for four of the authors (Associate Professor Richard Levy, Professor Karin Bryan, Associate Professor Giovanni Coco and Associate Professor Mark Dickson) to speak to their papers.
