On 3rd April, the first ‘Expert Lunch’ was held at Sustainable Future’s office.

For the debut, we invited Dr Sean Weaver from Carbon-Partnership as the guest, accompanied by Scott Wilson from Water Matters Ltd. We took the chance to enjoy an almost unseasonably beautiful day by having lunch on the roof of our building.

Discussions went well around issues Sustainable Future is dealing with, the main focus being climate change, carbon markets and policy, all being areas of expertise of Dr Sean Weaver. Such discussion is critical and helpful for Project 2058, and we were pleased with the outcomes. We appreciated the chance to share ideas about the implications of climate change in a long-term strategy for New Zealand.

We are now looking forward to the next Expert Lunch meeting which will be held on the 8th May with Dr Morgan Williams, former Parliamentary Commissioner for the Environment and Principal of Futuresteps, as the guest.
