Wānanga for 15 young Southland leaders opens pathways for all involved

A wānanga for 15 young environmental leaders in Southland was held at Te Kōawa Tūroa o Takitimu in February this year.  

The two day wānanga was the first of its kind for these students and was supported by an amazing local team of organisations.  The students were selected as representatives of the three southland secondary Enviroschools.

Enviroschools Jams in Auckland for Secondary School Students

'Mini Green Jams' is a concept that has been put into action after the Auckland Secondary Schools Sustainability Conference, held in Term 1 this year.

The purpose of the regional mini jams in Auckland is to get a wider group of like-minded students together to empower and inspire one-another.  The jams also have been great in:

  • motivating host schools to get action happening and consolidate sustainability in their school
  • giving students practice of running sustainable events
  • keeping momentum up in all schools
  • tackling bigger actions in regions
  • making sustainability more mainstream 

The third mini Jam to happen in Auckland this year was at Glenfield College.  They hosted the latest Green Jam in their school marae and had a focus on Māori Perspectives in the environment, native plant seed sowing, recycling and a swap-meet.

Four other mini Green Jams have also been held this year!  St Kentigern College hosted the eastern, Waitakere  College in the west, Papatoetoe High School in the south and One Tree Hill College in central Auckland.  Keep up the momentum this is wonderful!
