The Sustainable City Showcase kicks off in Auckland tomorrow and, among many other neat things in the programme, Sustainable Coastlines will be offering practical workshops for kids.
Children attending the showcase can create colourful artwork and mosaics from plastic found on the beach – with the idea of educating and teaching children and their parents how to make useful items out of waste.
A modified shipping container will be the venue for the kids’ activities, and will offer audio-visual educational workshops and fun free mosaic activities aimed at 5 to 12 year olds and their parents.
Chris Cochrane, creative projects manager, and Camden Howett, communications and brand manager for Sustainable Coastlines are running the workshops.
Entrance to the Sustainable City Showcase, held at The Cloud between 17 and 19 October, is free and all kids’ activities are also free of charge, with all project materials and tools supplied by Sustainable Coastlines.
