The Litter Intelligence Education Programme is a flexible programme for teachers and students changing hearts, minds and behaviours around litter pollution.
The programme develops individuals skills and capabilities in creative leadership, problem solving, presentation delivery, storytelling, influencing techniques, community engagement, citizen science and much much more.
We take a cross-curricular approach featuring:
The Department of Conservation inquiry cycle
A Citizen Science training workshop and kit to enable beach litter monitoring (your data contributes to a national database which actually gets used in governmental reporting and decision making)
Interactive website, data entry app, and access to real-world data for classroom use
Access to support and resources from our Sustainable Coastlines team
Education resource pack with training in its implementation
Inquiry-based learning by design
A real world context for academic learning
NCEA education for sustainability ready
Professional development day for educators post-engagement day
The programme is highly adaptable; allowing teachers to work collaboratively within a sustainability context and achieve subject specific learning objectives across all curriculum levels.
