Based at the top of the the South Island the Te Tauihu Collaborative group is focussed on environmental education in the widest context of community.
We are committed to working together to understand the full extent of environmental education for the benefit of the whole community, and creating opportunities to make connections and encourage conversations and collaborations.

We acknowledge the role and guidance of the Kotahitanga mō te Taiao Alliance.
Collaborating partners include representatives from councils, government agencies, environmental education providers, community organisers and teachers/educators.

What we do
We look for opportunities to work together or match schools and teachers with the best programme for their learning journey.
Our first priority is getting to know each other and what we do. In 2023 we are focussing on letting teachers know about the environmental education opportunities.
Collaborating through Kahui Ako hui, and networking to inform learning centres of events, opportunities and experiences. A Green Drinks event is scheduled for Novemeber. In 2024 we will be promoting professional learning opportunities and events for sharing and connecting.
