World Congress of Sociology of Sport 2019 Tourist attractions


Dunedin is a beautiful small city, located in the South Island of New Zealand. A true ‘university town’, it buzzes with student life and academic activity. It hosts a number of independent art galleries, bookshops and radical institutions. Alongside these cultural sites, Dunedin and its environs offers stunning opportunities for nature tourism and is a perfect taste of New Zealand’s natural beauty. Tramping (hiking) tracks are within easy distance of the town, as is the striking Otago Peninsula, home to albatross colonies and rare penguin breeds.

Kupu: Take a photo and learn the Māori translation

Kupu is an interactive mobile app powered by Google that helps people learn Te Reo Māori translations by exploring the objects around them. Kupu is really easy to use. Users simply take a picture, Kupu will then use image recognition to identify what the object is in the picture and provide Te Reo Māori translations for the object(s).

Kupu is available for download free from the Google Play Store and the iOS App Store.
