Many areas on land owned by the council, especially Golf courses and some city reserves could easily be converted into City sanctuary islands with no non-native predators. Native birds can island hop from larger DOC and ARC reserves and start to re-populate our city areas

Glass and plastic bottles must be re-used to prevent plastic waste and energy used in remaking bottles. The consumer buys their full bottles by crate or in bulk and pays a deposit for the bottles. The empties are taken back to the shop in return for the deposit. Use of glass would be encouraged because glass is environmentally better and can be fully recycled

Encourage schools and other large roof structure owners to install medium scale solar panel systems. Must include battery systems to help provide peak support to the power grid. New modular school buildings can be orientated with this in mind and be designed to eliminate the need for grid electricity. The school should complete a design study within it's teaching of relating to Climate change, even if the study shows that the building is not suited it will encourage pro-active involvement....
