Rotorua 2020 International Symposium

October 23 - October 25

$249 – $499

There is much wisdom from our ancestral past, both distal (our hunter-gatherer ancestry), and proximal (our great-grandparents, grandparents, parents) that we should look to apply in the present, especially if we are to head off some of the issues humanity faces as we move forward in these uncertain times. 

The core aim of The Ancestral Health Society of New Zealand | Te Kauwhata Tūhauora o Aotearoa is to promote research and disseminate knowledge relevant to the diverse health, environmental, and economic challenges facing modern human societies, using our shared evolutionary biology as a starting point from which to begin such inquiries.

We are proud to announce our third international symposium – #AHSNZ2020.
To be held where both culture and geology collide – Rotorua, New Zealand.

#AHSNZ2020 will be held at the Millennium Rotorua

8:30am to 5:30pm.
