The 2023 Bluegreens Forum, held in Blenheim on the 25th of March, was one of our best yet. Both the Leader and Deputy delivered keynote addresses, with Christopher Luxon taking the opportunity to announce National's flagship Three Waters policy.
We also heard from keynote speakers Josh Ellison at Re-wiring NZ, and Richard Dawkins - Marlborough's Sheep and Beef Farmer of the year for 2021.
There were also several pitch a policy sessions from Forest & Bird, Energy Resources Aotearoa, EnviroSolve, WWF-NZ, Irrigation NZ, Greenpeace, and the Packaging Forum.
We ran three panel sessions - RMA reform, Agriculture and the Environment, and a session with our new 2023 candidates led by our newest MP, Tama Potaka.

The 23rd Bluegreens Forum has just concluded in Masterton. Held over the 20th & 21st February it was attended by close to 100 Environment and Conservation minded members of the Party, NGO’s and major industry groups including farming, forestry, tourism and waste. This was another extremely successful Forum, and as such won accolades from many of our attendees – from both the left as well as the right politically.
We also welcomed two new members to the BlueGreens Caucus - Simon Watts and Christopher Luxon!
