Changing the Future - engaging hearts and promoting environmental action

Once again we will be using our beautiful Ruapehu Lodge as the venue for this year’s gathering, and hoping to inspire branch members with a great programme involving young and not quite so young speakers and workshops, focusing on helping us all to engage with our communities positively and successfully.

A range of outdoor activities in the area are on offer, including walks or a ride up the mountain on the new Sky Waka.  Or go botanising or whio spotting on the Whakapapanui Stream.

So for our gathering, we decided to focus on:

  • how we can educate our local populations about these threats - changing the future to a more positive, sustainable one
  • how to engage young people of all ages to act - environmental action
  • how to use the media to disseminate the message - engage hearts and minds.
