Do good feel good in Puketāpapa Mt Roskill

During Auckland Climate Festival, Roskill Together invites the local community of Mt. Roskill to join them for a series of workshops.

Calculating your current carbon footprint and planned savings.

Raising community awareness on how to be pro-active in taking actions and providing solutions to minimise the impacts of climate change on our lives and communities through reducing carbon emissions. Council staff will be present at the workshops to assist groups to calculate their current carbon footprint and their planned savings that will come as a result of their planned activities. The approach taken by this proposal will increase community engagement and participation in climate-related movements while also promoting awareness and education about climate change, calculating carbon footprints, sustainability and Live Lightly solutions.

We will stimulate people’s imaginations and inspire them to come up with project ideas to do this as we celebrate Auckland Climate Festival. Eat, Move, Energy, Grow, Shop, and Talk are the six themes of Live Lightly that we will emphasise and promote. This initiative also aims to build community resilience to the effects of climate change and proposals that have significant reach in terms of getting carbon emissions reduction messages out far and wide.

We will use a participatory budgeting process to enhance the learning as each group will pitch their idea to community members during a public celebration event in October, those present at the event where funding is allocated. Those gathered will be exposed to a variety of carbon emission reduction actions when they vote on which will receive a grant. Included will be categories for projects that include building community resilience to the effects of climate change and proposals that have significant reach in terms of getting carbon emissions reduction messages out far and wide.
