|Auckland Climate Festival
|Support is provided to the 2023 Auckland Climate Festival which provides a platform for over 100 climate action events within the programme as well as a launch and close event. There is no other open platform that brings together all of society around climate action like this each year, which means that a lot of climate action is not well known about, siloed and inaccessible to many. This means we are not making enough coordinated action and we are falling short of being on the way to meet our targets as a city. The platform serves to amplify existing climate action taking place, educate, inspire and accelerate change.
|Auckland King Tides Initiative
|Auckland King Tides Initiative Live Lightly School/Community Workshop Delivery
|This project involves the co-design/delivery of community workshops with Year 7-9 students/staff supporting the Auckland King Tides website/social media platform and water level (tide) gauge and CoastSnap network that can be monitored by local communities. Capturing and providing water level/beach monitoring data to the Auckland King Tides Initiative provides an opportunity for communities to learn about the causes and impacts of sea level rise on their coastline, and to identify and implement actions to adapt to sea level rise, and to mitigate future climate change impacts.
|Environment Hubs Aotearoa
|Support is provided to EcoFest 2023, a month-long festival held 18 March - 16 April 2023, coordinated by four environmental hubs and spanning the entire Auckland region.
The hubs are united in their commitment to making a sustainable lifestyle a ‘normal’ choice all cultures, ages and demographics can access, embrace and enjoy. They will facilitate this by connecting with individuals, schools, organisations and businesses to host a diverse range of hands-on workshops, experiences, interactive workshops, showcasing opportunities and experiential activities that celebrate and restore our natural environment, build community resilience, and teach ways to reduce their impact on the environment. In particular, 2023 EcoFest will include events that increase knowledge of bike repairs, promote active modes of transport, teach strategies to reduce energy consumption, promote renewable energy, guide food sovereignty, demonstrate food rescue and cooking, teach low carbon diet changes, share mātauranga around kai and sustainable practices, and encourage culturally appropriate climate actions.

|The Climate Action Conference
|This project seeks to support youth-led climate action. A conference has been on the backburner since the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, but now is the perfect opportunity to revitalise initiatives that encourage young people to step into leadership roles for climate action.
The Climate Action Conference will offer high school students in Tāmaki Makaurau the opportunity to engage with hands-on workshops, speakers and panels to equip them with the skills required to initiate climate action projects. We hope these workshops and constructive advice will help to empower over 300 rangatahi to carry out low-carbon emitting projects in their schools, homes and communities.
