"Walking the Talk" 05/09/20
"The 'Walking the talk to a sustainable and socially just future' event on Saturday at the Ōpōtiki Heritage Arts hall was a success according to the feedback received to date," says Caroline Willis who organised the event for the community.
The speakers were all from the East Coast electorate and representatives of the political, educational, activist and business sectors.
Government support for the organic food production industry and protection of the organic label was discussed, and the problem of industries that are polluting the environment was raised.
In summary, Caroline Willis said, "The diversity of the speakers was received just like the artworks in an art exhibition with surprise, interest and contemplation"
