Enviroschools is a growing network of schools and communities in New Zealand and internationally who want to make a positive difference to our environment. Schools create an environmental pathway and then move along that chosen path. Each school starts from an unique place and each school’s journey is different.
The Enviroschools Programme is an unique sustainability journey that over 950 early childhood education centres and schools in New Zealand are on.
Through exploration and discovery, tamariki and students develop learning and language, care and creativity, relationships and responsibilities suited to their developmental stage. What emerges is a connection with nature and a sense of belonging to the environment and community.
Through these connections with the environment tamariki can consider the world we are a part of, and look to how we make decisions to improve the physical and social environment of our places, our community and our world.
