Changing the Framing of our Lands and Forests

“The fox knows many things; the hedgehog one big thing.”


The Parliamentary Commission for the Environment (PCE) report Farms, Forests and Fossil Fuels: The next Great Landscape Transformation was released 26th March 2019.  Amidst all the calls for clarity and angst over change, or even civil dialogue, a number of key ideas lay buried, or tossed aside, or even stomped to death.  We do need to think differently.  And that involves paradigm shifts in framing.  A point made by the PCE in this report, as it was made by ex PCE Commissioner Morgan Williams in the 2004 PCE report Growing for Good.

NZIF Newsletter 25 March 2019 (President's Column)

I would like to extend my sympathies to all members affected by the tragedy in Christchurch last Friday. The perpetration of a mass murder on our shores is something few of us would have anticipated, It leads us all to personally reflect on the attitudes and behaviours that have brought us to this place, and what we might seek to change in the future. It has also rightly led the government to consider some significant changes to policies and regulations. The many different expressions of support for those most affected have been heartening and uplifting.
