New Frontiers is a mix of workshops, emergent conversations, keynote talks and fun activities, all within an intimate gathering aligned with our mission of supporting New Zealand as an “Incubation Nation”, from which to develop, grow and launch integrated solutions to global challenges.

Solving Global Problems
We will explore the complexities and interconnections between social and planetary challenges humanity faces today, can expand our imaginations of what is possible. The programme includes showcase presentations from EHF Fellows sharing their work on integrated and innovative solutions, as well as world-renowned speakers that can provide unique insights on how New Zealand can lead the world.
Johan Rockström from the Stockholm Resilience Center will be leading conversations on the growing climate crisis we face and the bold actions we need to take to stay within the planetary boundaries. We will explore innovations in policy, entrepreneurship, investments, and culture to address the biggest global problems of our time.
Co-created By You, The Participants
With your input, we will explore the edges of creativity for existing and new industries, through mutual learning and cross-pollination of diverse perspectives, covering topics such as agriculture, digital media, climate change, health, government, investment, and technology.
Relax, Unwind, Play
At New Frontiers, you will have many opportunities to relax, unwind, and enjoy time away from your day-to-day life to connect with yourself, and with old and new friends. Many participants have found this part of the programme rejuvenating, and shared their own talents with the group as well. If you’d like to run an active, wellness, or arts focused activity at New Frontiers, get in touch with us! Here are some examples from the past:
Traditional Māori culture & art, Massage & body work, Yoga, Music, Outdoor games, Spoken word performances, Storytelling, Sustainability education, Art, Laughter and Happiness!
Throughout New Frontiers, our master chef and her talented team will be keeping you well fed with amazing cuisine! We will serve mostly a plant-based menu using locally-sourced fresh foods, from organic wholesale suppliers.
