Club Walk: Wellington's South Coast

Club Walk: Wellington's South Coast

Explore the eastern end of Wellington’s wild & amazing South Coast.

On a nice day it's like strolling in the Mediterranean, but of course, Wellington's fickle climate can also make this a savage & windswept place.

Visit Ataturk Memorial, Beacon Hill Station & view Barrett’s Reef from where the stricken Wahine hit the rocks at her darkest hour in 1968.

You will then head through pines & downstairs to the road exotically named Pass of Branda. The Pass of Branda was named after the apparently well-known pass at the head of Loch Ave in the Argyll and Bute area of Scotland.

The 2-hour walk is of undulating terrain (intermediate level).

Victoria at the Club: All New Zealanders are equal, but some are more equal than others

Victoria at the Club with Professor Lisa Marriott

Professor Marriott will report on research findings showing that individuals in NZ are likely to receive different treatment in society depending on whether they are more or less advantaged. She will discuss the different treatments of tax evaders & welfare fraudsters in the justice system, together with a range of other situations where those who are poor receive different treatment from those who are wealthy. This includes the different treatments of those who hold tax debts & those who hold welfare debts; the different treatments of the partners of those who engage in welfare fraud & tax evasion; and the different approaches adopted for people who have tax debt or welfare debt & are suffering from serious hardship.

Lisa Marriott is a Professor of Taxation at Victoria University of Wellington’s School of Accounting & Commercial Law. Her research interests include social justice & inequality, as well as the behavioural impacts of taxation.

Victoria at the Club: What a philosopher has to say about the future of work

Victoria at the Club: What a philosopher has to say about the future of work

Victoria at the Club with Professor Nicholas Agar

The experts offer contrasting perspectives on the future of work. A view advocated by leading economists that goes back to John Maynard Keynes suggests that once we pass through some painful technological unemployment, we should expect the digital revolution to create exciting new jobs. Our contentedly employed grandchildren will pity us the soulless drudgery that we call work. According to a view of some leading technologists, automation will permanently delete the vast majority of jobs. Few of these will be replaced. Professor Agar will discuss how to approach this very consequential disagreement. We can’t predict the future but we should take seriously the possibility that many jobs will be automated out of existence. We should respond by creating jobs based on our social natures. This could be part of our response to the epidemic of social isolation that afflicts many of today’s most technologically advanced societies.

Nicholas Agar is a philosopher who has written extensively on the human consequences of technological change. He is currently a Professor at the School of History, Philosophy, Political Science & International Relations at Victoria University of Wellington.

Speaker Series: North Korea: A journey behind closed doors

Speaker Series: North Korea: A journey behind closed doors

Rupert Rokeby-Johnson will share his experiences of visiting North Korea for eight days in 1996, at the end of the great famine. He began his journey in the capital of North Korea, Pyongyang, with a few excursions out. He was limited in the number of places he could visit as the regime only allowed him, and others on the trip, to visit certain parts of the country. It was a very sanitised version of life in North Korea. He describes North Korea as the most extreme form of a 20th century totalitarian state.

Mr Rokeby-Johnson has been a Club member since 2012, after moving from the UK in 2011 where he practiced as a solicitor in the UK. He has always enjoyed travelling, politics & history.

Pikarere Station Walk

Pikarere Station Walk

Join the Health & Fitness Centre team for an afternoon walk, lunch & swim at Pikarere Station with The Wellington Club trustee & host Dan Stevenson, who has kindly opened his home to us.

Pikarere is a 810 hectare operational farm with 5km of coastline and spectacular views of Mana Island, Kapiti Island, the South Island and to Mt Taranaki on a clear day.

The walk will take two groups (one on an intermediate walk & one on a more relaxing walk) through Pikarere Farm taking in spectacular sea views & breathtaking scenery.

Once we have worked up an appetite, we will enjoy a well-earned lunch followed by a dip in the swimming pool.

Walking options

Option 1:  Coastal walk (approx. 2 hours) will take you along some steep terrain but with some spectacular sea views. Orca and dolphins are known to visit these shores. This walk would be more suited to the intermediate walker.

Option 2:  A more relaxed walk (approx. 1 hour) will give you time to take in the breathtaking scenery along a flatter terrain. More suited for the leisurely walker.

Victoria at the Club: What is this Royal Commission into Historical Abuse all about & why does it matter?

Victoria at the Club: What is this Royal Commission into Historical Abuse all about & why does it matter?

Victoria at the Club with Dr Elizabeth Stanley

In January 2018, the largest Royal Commission in NZ’s history started work. Focused on charting the nature, extent & impacts of abuse in state care & in faith-based institutions, it will inevitably open the door for the most gruelling stories of violence & harms against children, young people & vulnerable adults. Drawing on her significant research in the area, Dr Stanley considers how this Royal Commission emerged? Why it matters? What it does? And what it might contribute to NZ society?

Dr Stanley is a Professor in Criminology & Rutherford Discovery Fellow at Victoria University of Wellington. She has extensive experience in researching commissions established to deal with mass human rights violations. Her book The Road to Hell: State Violence against Children in Post-War New Zealand contributed to the development of the Royal Commission.

Victoria at the Club: The red queen, the pull of Mars & the pulse of life

Victoria at the Club: The red queen, the pull of Mars & the pulse of life

Victoria at the Club with Professor James Crampton

To the best of our knowledge, life is unique to Earth. We still don’t understand what controls the number of species that coexist on this little planet. There is, however, clearly a rather complex interplay between environmental factors on the one hand (e.g. climate) and species-to-species biological interactions on the other (e.g. predation), which controls the diversity of life. Fortunately, the fossil record documents the history of this interplay & reveals a whole suite of natural experiments in environmental upheavals & transitions. We can study these natural experiments in biodiversity change to help us understand the wonderful, squishy, wriggly, smelly, noisy, richness of life on our world and to help us model & mitigate future ecological change.

Professor Crampton is a palaeontologist who works at Victoria University of Wellington & GNS Science in Lower Hutt. His research spans a broad range of fields, from dinosaur hunting in Te Urewera, to evolution of marine critters, to the development of the geological timescale for exploration. His fieldwork has taken him from equatorial deserts to Antarctic islands. The thrill of being the first to see a freshly exposed, millions-of-years old fossil never goes away.
