Imagine if NZ had an environment month similar to NZ Music Month or NZ Fashion Week etc to highlight the importance of our environment. A month of environment awareness with events, shows, could help tourism too by highlighting specific areas and campaigns on specific websites and ads. Would NZ be the first in the world to do this? Can we? Lets do it! Why? Because we need awareness more than anything!. The first step for action on climate change is to get everyone onboard. How? Pick...

Imagine if there were sensors all over NZ monitoring air composition, pollution levels and other vital information displayed for everyone to see. This will really increase awareness of climate change, pollution in our cities and even our waterways. Why? Think about the classic NZ Fire Danger level 'Cmon - Keep it Green' and UV levels we often check in summer. Well, this is similar but a board that will show pollution levels (Good to Poor) displayed everywhere. If you're walking down a...

Imagine if all the restaurants in NZ that you love took extra effort to run the most sustainable business from the packaging they use, how they mange their waste and other areas. These businesses should be given a sustainable rating (similar to the eat safe A - F rating) and should be given an incentive when  they meet a certain level and maintain it too. Some problems we're dealing with: "Twelve thousand tonnes of bread, 3000 tonnes of poultry -- more than 120,000 tonnes of food worth...

Just like your blue recycle bins that are given to households, a black compost bin should be provided. Imagine if all NZ households were composting their greenwaste at home! It would reduce rubbish at landfills, produce healthy gardens, educate people and increase awareness of recycling. This could also be an opt-in thing for households that can afford it. not sure how we'd finance it but if Auckland Council could have an option (Maybe partner with a company) and provide a subsidised bin,...

Imagine bus stops all around NZ having low maintenance vertical gardens installed which would make the area green and improve air quality. Imagine if you could adopt one - Jamie's bus stop or Jane's stop which could be customised, greened up and all! How? It could be that companies, shops and maybe even individuals adopt bus shelters who look after these vertical gardens. Imagine if you could adopt one - Jamie's bus stop or Jane's stop which could be customised, greened up and all! Maybe...

Imagine beautiful art & paintings done by local artists around NZ using paint that absorbs pollutants & nasty particles. How beautiful would that be! Reduce pollution while bringing artists and paintings to communities! - Yay! Yes, there are paints that can absorb pollution :). In Manila, Phillipines used a paint that removed nasty particular matter from the air. A quote from an article back in 2011 " This Filipino innovation is proven to take away 10 cars’ worth of emissions per...

Imagine if all the available rooftop space in NZ is either semi or fully converted into green spaces! - It would totally reduce surrounding temperatures, increase biodiversity and create new green spaces! This idea is around increasing the awareness of using existing rooftop spaces (For flats, office buildings, shop owners & homes where possible) to create new green spaces whether it's one plant, a raised vege patch or if it's converting an entire rooftop into a garden like the NZI...
