Speakers this year

Pere and Samah Huriwai-Seger

Pere and Samah Huriwai-Seger are activists and co-founders of Aotearoa Liberation League – or ALL – a charity which advocates for collective liberation. Pere and Samah will talk about their journey and experiences with activism, and how that led them to forming ALL. They will discuss why they see colonisation as the common enemy of animals, people and our environment, and how honouring Te Tiriti o Waitangi can bring a positive outcome for all of us.

Jason Shon Bennett

‘Jason was simply the most popular speaker we have ever had’

Oli Allen

Oli Allen is an environmentalist and an animal caretaker. They found their calling when they joined the environmental committee in high school. This encouraged them to study Ecology and Zoology at the University of Otago where they developed a deep understanding of our ecosystems and how they are impacted by humans and the lives that we lead. Since then they have continued to develop their knowledge of environmental issues and the threats to our ecosystem while travelling around the world caring for animals. Through instagram and their website they aim to raise awareness about environmental threats and what we can do to help.
