The guest speaker at the 2021 Awards Dinner is Professor Hugh Campbell, Founding Director of the Centre for Sustainability at the University of Otago. 
Prof Campbell will look back and look forward in what is sure to be an entertaining and challenging speech about  the New Zealand economy’s reliance on using the land. It started with farming and has broadened out into a wide range of land-based industries. The 2020s will be a decade of remarkable change for these industries, including increasing levels of crisis for sectors that don’t heed the need for a sustainable approach in balance with nature. 
 
These themes are explored in his new book, Farming Inside Invisible Worlds, published in November 2020.  Interview with Prof Campbell
