Kaipatiki Project Environment Centre is proud to be co-ordinating Ecofest Kaipatiki – ten days of environmentally-themed events across our local board area from Friday 28 October to Sunday 6 November 2016.
We believe that everyone has a connection to the environment, and that any group can help people to feel that connection and share it with others as part of this fun, informative and inspirational festival.
The idea behind Ecofest Kaipatiki, which is being supported by Kaipatiki Local Board, is that organisations large or small bring an event or a great shared initiative to the programme.
You could be a playcentre or school organising a clean-up in a neighbouring park or pledging to go plastic-free, you could be a library hosting a waste-reduction or healthy home advice workshop, or your local restoration group could turn a regular weeding bee into a walk and talk, or a scavenger hunt or a glow-worm tour…
Let your imagination be your guide, but here are a few ideas for ways to engage your community during Ecofest Kaipatiki:
- help visitors to discover wild or special places near you by organising a bug hunt or nature walk
- get on yer bike with your community or have fun walking & exercising in our parks
- host a class to learn tips and tricks for edible gardening, waste-free cooking or composting
- make a pledge (in your school, club, workplace) to live smarter and lighter on the planet eg car-free days, plastic-free lunches
It doesn’t matter if your event/initiative is only a good idea at the moment, let us know as much detail as you can about what you are planning and we will come back to you for confirmation. We may be able to put you in touch with partners who can help you or provide funding.
Use this form to register your event/s to appear in the Ecofest Kaipatiki programme (repeat for multiple events).
DEADLINE: Monday 5 September (early registration is appreciated)
Please read the event guidelines at the start of the form – thank you.
