Kids Greening Taupō is an environmental education programme that connects schools to an authentic purpose for teaching and learning. The programme is based on the work of Greening Taupō, a community organisation aiming to increase the native flora and fauna of the town for the benefit of its people, businesses and natural environment. Kids Greening Taupō provides the link between local schools and Greening Taupō, whereby students lead real-life projects to increase biodiversity and solve environmental problems.
Mai i te kōpae ki te urupā, e tātou ako tonu ai.
From the cradle to the grave, we are forever learning.
Kids Greening Taupō will enable young people to
participate in real life projects with opportunities to connect in a
culturally responsive way to their local environment and communities to
increase biodiversity, student leadership and educational outcomes,
shaping the future of our Place, now.
