Christchurch City Council offers a range of free sustainability-focused programmes for schools and kura.
Learning Through Action programmes are centered around sustainable living and positive citizenship. All programmes are free of charge.
Authentic, hands-on experiences are provided in real-world settings to encourage connection, understanding and a sense of belonging. Participants are challenged to think critically about the part we play in looking after what we have.
The Christchurch City Council Education Team are part of the Enriching Local Curriculum (ELC) network, and work with schools to provide meaningful experiences that link with the National, Te Marautanga o Aotearoa and Te Whāriki curricula.
Learning areas covered include biodiversity, climate change, waste management, water conservation, geology, civil defence, youth voice and local government.
