Geoscience Conference 2021

Geoscience Society of New Zealand Annual Conference

Palmerston North 30 November - 2 December 2021


Geoscience 2021 will be held at Massey University, Turitea Campus, Palmerston North from Tuesday 30 November to Thursday 2 December 2021 

A range of pre- and post-conference field trips will be offered to explore our beautiful backyard that we started appreciating even more during 2020 with exact locations yet to be finalised. 

Your local organising committee want to make this an enjoyable networking event with exciting science and a fun social programme.  With this in mind there will be: 

  • an Icebreaker at Wharerata on Monday 29 November,
  • a casual BBQ with fun sports and networking activities at the Sports & Rugby Institute on Tuesday 30 November, and
  • the conference dinner at the Awapuni Racecourse on Wednesday 1 December. 

We look forward to welcoming you.  In the meantime, to get you in the mood, you can watch a 2-minute overview of Palmerston North via the image above.
