Volcano to Sea Book

Community Urban Restoration & Education Guide

'Community Urban Restoration & Education Guide' is aimed at people and organisations who are interested in getting involved in urban restoration work. By sharing some of the experiences gained on the Volcano to Sea project NZ Landcare Trust hopes this guide can inspire others to transform ideas into practical action-on-the-ground.

'Around New Zealand many enthusiastic people are looking at ways to rescue and restore urban environments, but they're often faced with limited resources and funding challenges. By harnessing the power of community collaboration, degraded urban environments can be revitalised." (Community Urban Restoration & Education Guide)

The 70 page guide provides a wealth of information, with chapters covering subjects such as:

  • how to establish catchment groups
  • the importance of setting goals and objectives
  • using good communication techniques to build and maintain support
  • the benefits of monitoring and evaluation
  • the role of education, especially working with schools

The guide is available in both printed and digital versions. For a printed copy send a request to Melinda Dresser at VolcanoToSea@landcare.org.nz
