This month we’re celebrating the diverse array of people who call New Zealand home. Regardless of our different faiths, abilities, cultures, nationalities, ages, orientations and even genders - we want to make sure that our communities are safe and welcoming for all.

There’s many ways to take part! From hosting a multicultural potluck where each attendee brings a dish from a country of their choice to coordinating a fundraiser that benefits refugees or our elderly there are thousands of ways big and small to make our households, neighbourhoods, schools and businesses even more inclusive. It could even be as simple as learning from a neighbour how to say ‘hello’ in their native language or ensuring local footpaths are accessible!

Don’t forget this month also coincides with Women’s Refugee Awareness Month and International Day of Friendship on July 30th - a United Nations day that promotes the role that friendship plays in promoting peace in many cultures.

Want to share your thoughts? Let us know how you’re making your community more inclusive this month by tagging us in your posts + using the following hashtag so we can see what you get up to:

Poll: Should learning about climate change be part of the school curriculum?

Stacey Reporter from Stuff

Climate change is the most critical issue of the moment, and has been described by our prime minister as her generation's "nuclear-free moment". Its impacts, regardless of your views on it, are only going to get greater.

Yet it is not part of our school curriculum.

Climate change is the most critical issue of the moment, and has been described by our prime minister as her generation's "nuclear-free moment". Its impacts, regardless of your views on it, are only going to get greater.

Yet it is not part of our school curriculum.

Some experts say that has to change. It is such an existential threat that not to make it a requirement to teach children about climate change is doing them a great disservice, they say.
