EfS Strategy Launched

Kia ora koutou

The Mātauranga Whakauka Taio – Environment Education for Sustainability Strategy and Action Plan has just been launched. Developed on behalf of government by the Department of Conservation, Ministry of the Environment and Ministry of Education, the strategy refreshes the Environmental Education strategy released in 1998 to reflect the changes in priorities and approaches that have happened in the last 20 years.

The Strategy sets out three priority areas to guide where government agencies direct their efforts over the next ten years; and sets out short term objectives to direct focus on over the first four years.  Our next steps — as outlined in the strategy — are to celebrate the great practices and partnerships already underway, strengthen environmental education networks to encourage collaboration, and build capability within the environmental education sector by providing guidelines, tools and professional learning opportunities. We want communities to engage with students in environmental projects and help provide healthy learning experiences with intellectual, physical, emotional and social benefits.
