Dr Ann Pomeroy in recognition of her long and distinguished career as a researcher and sustained contributions and excellence in rural geography and sociology. Dr Pomeroy’s work is sought out and valued highly by those seeking both critical insights and rich empirical data on aspects of change in rural New Zealand. Furthermore, her research outputs produced for a range of non-university agencies show depth, breadth and sustained quality of intimate understandings of rural New Zealand. We are deeply grateful for Dr Pomeroy’s outstanding service to the Society, and also her advocacy and support for women in geography, and beyond.

Honorary Geographer Award

 

 

 

Kennedy Warne in recognition of his long and distinguished career as a ‘public geographer’, passionate communicator and advocate of concerns relating to land, society, environment and culture in Aotearoa New Zealand. We are deeply grateful for Mr Warne’s passion for Māori and environmental issues, immersion in sustainable eco-philosophy and commitment to conveying stories via his voice into households not only across Aotearoa (via radio and magazine articles) but also internationally (he co-founded New Zealand Geographic magazine, and writes for many popular media outlets).
