Carbon Reduction Guidance

Carbon Reduction Guidance
Tāku, Kia ora ai te ao and Me, growing a thriving world

These partner documents from Te Tāhuhu o te Mātauranga | Ministry of Education provide guidance for schools and kura to:

  • place climate change within a te ao Māori lens,
  • connect with Te Marautanga o Aotearoa and the New Zealand Curriculum, and
  • provide some practical actions that schools and kura can take to reduce carbon emissions

The actions are based on research and experiences of kura and schools. The guidelines aim to provide information to further support best practice for teachers and schools, with case studies, examples of carbon reduction tools and links to resources.

As guardians we have a responsibility to ensure that Atua Māori and all things created by Atua Māori are cared for and nurtured. In caring for them, we also support their mana and mauri. If nurtured sustainably, they further prosper and thrive with vitality. If they are healthy, then we, the teina (younger siblings) are also healthy.
