We aim to engage Canterbury children and young people with the current natural resource issues. We are willing to talk with you about your learning programmes and share ideas about how you may weave aspects of education for sustainability into your lessons. We are also available to work with classes focusing on natural resource issues that directly relate to the area or topic that you are studying. We also occasionally facilitate hui for young people around the Canterbury Water Management Strategy and other natrual resource issues..
Our programmes page will give you information on what we offer.
