I specialise in writing about big concepts such as sustainability, interdependence and climate change for children and incorporating those ideas into the schools curriculum. I have 20 years experience in research and resource development on environmental issues including waste, energy, overfishing, deforestation, pollution, restoration,
gardening and sustainability. I also write for the Kapiti Independent newspaper.
Consultation and Planning
Almost two decades of experience in how to incorporate Environmental Education into your curriculum. Schools, community groups, businesses, NGOs and Government organisations - I've worked with them all to educate and facilitate initiatives of waste reduction, water use, restoration, gardening, transport planning, energy use, eco-building, professional development for teachers, community engagement, funding and engagement in civics education. Let me know how I can help with your project.
Workshops, Storytelling and other stuff..
Writing, arts, crafts, storytelling, science, campaigning and planting workshops based on the 'nature and me' teachers resources. Incorporating the ideas in the books, I can tailor my workshops to suit your needs. I am a registered 'writer in schools' for the NZ Book Council. If your school is registered with the Book Council, workshops with me are free!
Storytelling, utube clips, events, painting, poetry, events and more. Here are some links to my other projects. Contact me if you think I can help you with yours!
