Garry Moore presents the Trust’s strategic pillars to a receptive audience at Lincoln University

 

Rod Donald Banks Peninsula Trust and Lincoln University: A Future Partnership” was the title of Garry Moore’s seminar with staff and students of Lincoln University. Garry’s presentation <link to uploaded pdf of presentation> traced the Trust foundations back to Julius Vogel and the abolition of the Canterbury Provincial Council before describing its long term objectives and how these are underpinned by the four strategic pillars of Access, Knowledge, Biodiversity and Partnerships. He then revealed that partnership work with Lincoln University was already underway as the Trust has committed to fund three summer studentships developed in conjunction with Dr. Stephen Espiner from the Department of Social Science, Parks, Recreation, Tourism and Sport. The studentships will examine the existing and potential usage of the Summit Walkway tracks from Gebbies Pass to Hilltop on Banks Peninsula, the existing and potential usage of partner organisation Orton Bradley Park and the relationship between marine protection measures and tourism in Akaroa harbour. The Trust is also interested in fostering Banks Peninsula as a research lab for Lincoln University projects related to its strategic pillars and invites academics at the University to explore the relationship further.
A lively discussion followed the presentation keeping Garry on his toes.
