Teaching and facilitating environmental and sustainability education in South & East Auckland

We believe in a future where all people value nature, and this starts with inspiring the hearts and minds of our young people. We want to empower tamariki and rangatahi to become environmental heroes of the future.

Our free programmes offer unique opportunities for young people to connect with local places, understand environmental issues and put their knowledge and creativity into practical action.
