This workshop is free to anyone interested in our project-based environmental education programme.

Backed by the Ministry for the Environment, Sustainable Coastlines is in the roll-out stage of a project to create grassroots solutions to litter in Aotearoa. As part of this project, we are offering a free engagement day to describe the programme in detail to teachers, educators and interested parties.

The day will include a full Citizen Science Training Workshop, enabling attendees to enter data into the national litter database. We will conduct a survey & audit together and also introduce the full Litter Intelligence Education Programme.

Over the past two years we have worked with behavioural change and education experts to design an exciting programme.  It is a flexible programme for teachers and students changing hearts, minds and behaviours around litter pollution, which easily connects into several areas of the national curriculum and the NZ qualifications framework. The platform is designed to be tailored to suit a variety of educational contexts and age groups, and can be applied to new and existing local initiatives.

While the context for this training will be to improve litter reduction behaviours, the skills developed and the tools offered will be useful across a broad range of education contexts, and examplars of these will be readily available. We look forward to working with you to look after the places we love.

The day is fully funded by the Howick Local Board.

We encourage anyone that is involved in education including local council members, community group leaders and parents.

As a preparation for the day, go to, take a browse around and find the answer to the following question:  Which is the most plastic dense beach in your region?

This will be a full day; 9am to 4pm with breaks for morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea.
