How we work

Waikato Enviroschools

Enviroschools in the Waikato Region is co-ordinated regionally by the Waikato Regional Council. A team of six facilitators work in the Waikato region with approximately 180 schools and kindergartens and their students, teachers and communities on their Enviroschools journey to a sustainable future. The Waikato Kindergarten Association support their kindergartens with the Enviroschools kaupapa.

The Waikato Enviroschools team also facilitates the Trees for Survival Programme in about 30 Waikato Schools.

Enviroschools is a participatory whole school approach that involves students in the decision-making, design and implementation of sustainability projects and practices in their school and community.

Enviroschools is a collaborative programme.  The nationwide hub is held by Toimata Foundation.  Toimata Foundation manages the Enviroschools programme nationally and provides the regional networks with facilitator training, professional development, mentoring, networking opportunities, resources and evaluation.

It is funded in the Waikato region by:
