Sustainable Backyards Month
March 1, 2019 - April 1, 2019
Sustainable Backyards (SBY) is a month-long calendar of events in March hosted throughout the Bay. Last year we had over 140 free or low cost EnviroEvents supporting sustainable living, conservation and other awesome initiatives that were taking place regionally. SBY aims to improve the wellbeing and quality of life of people in the community via informative workshops and activities. These range anywhere from growing your own food, beach/estuary clean ups, consumer choices, cooking, solar home seminars, bush walks, exhibitions, farmers/ night markets, kids events and movie screenings. SBY provides a mechanism for communities and organisations in the Bay of Plenty to have a voice in the protection of their environment and people.
SBY Aims to benefit the community in the following ways:
Connect people – via low cost or free events with a broad demographic appeal, including Maori, youth and the elderly.
Inspire people – Improving the wellbeing and quality of life of people in the community via informative workshops and activities.
Engage and train people– helping people be proactive in new learning and lifestyles
A green voice – Provide a mechanism for communities and organisations in the Bay of Plenty to have a voice in the protection of their environment and people via the promotion of local initiatives.
The outcomes are well connected, better informed, resourced and skilled individuals coming together to form resilient communities.
Can’t Wait To See You All There!
