Whakaora | To Heal

Our conference is all about Whakaora.  Whakaora for patients is our vocation, but what about Whakaora for Ourselves, Our City and our Planet?

Whakaora - Our Patients

The key message of Whakaora 2021;
Improving quality of care in the face of a rapidly changing world.

Whakaora - Ourselves

Bring your smile and laughter. Be open to new ideas and meeting new people. Bring your family, plan some exercise, yoga, meditation or mindfulness. Sleep well.

Whakaora - Our City

Come and see our local community programs and markets. Check out how geothermal heating is used to heat our civic buildings and how we are NOT using coal to heat our new hospital. Walk or run our parks, our hills and our beaches. Cycle our awesome mountain bike trails or our classic road bike routes. Support our local cafes and restaurants.

Whakaora - Our Planet

Flying to the conference? - Don’t forget to offset. Better still, plant some trees or donate to our local native bush regeneration projects. What about that rail trip you’ve never done? Now is your chance.
Relax and don’t rush, enjoy Aotearoa.

Rent an electric car to explore the region, explore the city and suburbs with an e-bike or e-scooter or, of course, you could be radical and WALK.
