Day Zero at NetHui - get amongst it!

NetHui is a platform for conversations amongst the Internet community of New Zealand about how we want to make the most of our Internet. With that in mind, an important part of the NetHui experience is opening up Day Zero of the event to organisations that want to explore that potential in their own way.


InternetNZ is delighted with the slate of Day Zero events we have this year, all taking part on November the 8th at the Aotea Centre in Auckland. Here’s what’s happening on Day Zero:


  • FLINT: We are pleased to bring you the 2nd Annual FLINT Future of Work conference.  This year it is all about you learning to Work Your Magic in what is becoming a world increasingly disrupted by technological development. These developments inevitably affect the way we work, what we can work on and what our place in the workplace looks like. The conference is centred around helping you navigate this changing environment.

  • NZ Government Open Access and Licensing framework (NZGOAL): Creative Commons Aotearoa New Zealand (CCANZ) is offering a free interactive workshop for staff from government agencies on how to apply the NZ Government Open Access and Licensing framework (NZGOAL) and Creative Commons copyright licences. You will learn about copyright and Crown copyright, the purpose of NZGOAL and other information policies, and how to apply them.

  • Open Access Workshop: Join Creative Commons international Chief Executive Ryan Merkley and CC Aotearoa NZ Public Lead Mandy Henk for a lively discussion of the value of our home-grown Open Access movement: where we're at and where we're headed. Creative Commons Aotearoa New Zealand will also be celebrating their 10th Anniversary on the evening of the 8th of October.

  • New Zealand Internet Research Forum: The event is designed to facilitate discussion and establish connections between academics, and the public and private sectors. Forums bring together those people involved in and/or interested in Internet research to share perspectives, discuss potential links and collaborations, and most importantly to build a research network community that benefits New Zealanders.

  • Haerenga Whakamua! Moving Forward Together: Be inspired by Māori innovation, entrepreneurship and leadership in the ICT space. This is a truly unique opportunity to engage with a range of Māori ICT leaders (young and not so young) who will share their local and international journey’s, showcasing their collective talents. Hosted by Peter-Lucas Jones, this is a forum you won't want to miss. Nau mai haere mai - all welcome!

  • OMGTech Trailblazers Workshop: If you missed ULearn 2017, fear not. OMGTech! is repeating our interactive workshops on the new Digital Technologies Curriculum at Nethui 2017. It will be a hands-on techy session where we show you some of the tech you could use, and you can decide how to teach it. We will also give you a link to a new interactive resource, the digital tech round-up, where we showcase all the tech we have heard of (and even some we haven’t!)


We’re really pleased to see such an exciting collection of unique events for Day Zero this year. Many of these still have spaces available - so if they’re for you too, then you need to register for NetHui!
