In 2018, Keep New Zealand Beautiful (KNZB) launched Kiki Kiwi and friends, as part of the “Litter Less” programme for students aged 5–11 years old. These litter centric educational resources are based on the adventures of Kiki the Kiwi and his endeavour to stop litterers! They’ve been developed to help 5–11 year olds understand and respond to litter and littering issues. They are aligned with the New Zealand Curriculum and are flexible enough to be taught as a complete unit of work or individual themes can be taught separately.
Get in touch if you have any questions at email@example.com.
Dates: 17-19 July
Venue: Aotea Centre, Auckland.
