School pupils can now explore a real-world issue facing New Zealand – how to best manage our vast marine resources – thanks to a collaboration between the Sustainable Seas Challenge and Science Learning Hub.
Improving marine management is critical to New Zealand's future health and wealth, but research in isolation is not enough. Excellent engagement with, and participation from, all users and sectors of society is essential. We have therefore been working with our Board and Stakeholder Panel members to identify Treaty partners, organisations and individuals to co-develop our strategy for 2019–2024.
