Background: In 2012 Envirohub Bay of Plenty applied for, and received seed funding from the Bay of Plenty Regional Council to facilitate the development of an environment network.  This network was established in response to grassroots community groups across the region identifying a need for greater collaboration, knowledge sharing and networking opportunities within the wider community and across different groups and organisations.

Now into its 5th year, the network is open to groups in the BOP involved in protecting and caring for the health of our physical environment and communities – from care groups, to recycling initiatives, to maara kai and community gardens, to sustainable transport.  These groups have the opportunity via this network to be part of a collective voice for our region’s environment.

Our online Forum is now live. The Forum provides our community with the capability to conveniently converse, collaborate and connect… it only takes a minute to register!


Recently we held our annual Regional Environment Network Hui as an online series.

This is an opportunity to hear about the latest news, technology and science in the area of conservation and climate change.
