Webinar Recordings from Term One

We had lots of interest and participation in our Term One webinars, with teachers and providers from across the motu attending live online. Both of these webinars were recorded and have accompanying resources for you to explore, so take some time over the next few weeks to engage with the content at your own pace.

Secondary Education: Embedding sustainability and regeneration
Facilitated by Sophie Watson (EONZ) and Becky McCormack (NZAEE), this webinar provides updates and inspiration for secondary educators.

Local Collaboration: Exploring case studies and support 
Facilitated by Thea DePetris, with guest speakers from Taranaki, Wairarapa and Taupō, this webinar is a great resource for local groups who would like to strengthen collaboration.

New Resources

Navigating our Freshwater Environment
This digital resource from the Ministry for the Environment uses storytelling to help us understand the environment through the eyes of the tuna (longfin eel). Using photos, videos and interactive maps, the StoryMap examines the challenges facing tuna throughout their lives as travel ki uta ki tai (mountains to sea) – and how those challenges affect aspects of the freshwater ecosystem, people, communities and sectors.

Fierce Hope book
This important new book from Bridget Williams Books opens the doors on six influential activist groups: ActionStation, Generation Zero, InsideOUT Kōaro, JustSpeak, Protect Ihumātao, and Thursdays in Black. Activists from these groups explain vividly what future they want for our country, and how we can get there. They address an array of urgent issues, from indigenous rights to the justice system and imprisonment; from climate change to rainbow rights and sexual violence. In their voices we hear hope, anger, despair and anxiety – emotions which inform and galvanise activism.

Garden to Table: Invisible World of Soil
Check out the taster resources, or for those schools who are part of the Garden to Table programme, you have full access to these curriculum aligned resources.

Te Whakatika Journal: Summer Issue 2023
Te Whakatika is the Aotearoa NZ Professional Practice Journal for Outdoor and Environmental Learning, a partnership between NZAEE and Education Outdoors New Zealand (EONZ). We are excited to be working with EONZ as part of this well loved publication, to create a space to share good practice, innovative ideas and critical engagement in outdoor and environmental learning.

This issue includes articles about nature connection, gender-inclusive practices in the outdoors and national research about education outside the classroom.
