Sustainable Backyards (SBY) is a month-long calendar of events in March hosted throughout the Bay. This year we had over 170 free or low-cost Enviro Events supporting sustainable living, conservation and other awesome initiatives that were taking place regionally. SBY aims to improve the wellbeing and quality of life of people in the community via informative workshops and activities. These range anywhere from growing your own food, beach/estuary cleanups, consumer choices, cooking, bush walks, farmers/ night markets, kids events, frock swaps, and movie screenings. SBY provides a mechanism for communities and organisations in the Bay of Plenty to have a voice in the protection of their environment and people.
SBY Aims to benefit the community in the following ways:
- Connect people – via low cost or free events with a broad demographic appeal, including Maori, youth and the elderly.
- Inspire people – Improving the wellbeing and quality of life of people in the community via informative workshops and activities.
- Engage and train people– helping people be proactive in new learning and lifestyles
- A green voice – Provide a mechanism for communities and organisations in the Bay of Plenty to have a voice in the protection of their environment and people via the promotion of local initiatives.
The outcomes are well connected, better informed, resourced and skilled individuals coming together to form resilient communities.
We Can’t Wait To See You All There!
