We're very excited to announce Climate Insights as our new Neighbourly partner.
Climate insights is looking forward to supporting the Neighbourly community, helping kiwis protect their homes against climate change and live better within their communities. Climate Insights use science-based information to provide tools and guidance as we strive to become more sustainable and resilient.
Please join us in welcoming Climate Insights and stay tuned for localised climate information, tools and much more!
Here's a cool idea for communicating with your neighbours without technology or breaching alert level rules...
Each household gets 3 pieces of coloured paper that can be displayed in a window or on a door that others can easily see.
- Green is for I'm OK
- Yellow is for needing help or a check-in
- Red is for an emergency
This is a safe and simple way let others know how you're doing while also looking out for others in your community.
Entries are open for this year’s Sunday Star-Times short story awards.
The awards include open, emerging Māori and Pasifika writers, and under-25 years categories and will be judged by some of New Zealand’s best authors.
The winning story will be published in the Sunday Star-Times and on Stuff. Entries close Friday 22 October.
This year Kiwis are being encouraged to grow-an-extra-row to share with neighbours, community pantries, food banks and other local food donation agencies.
Backyard and communal edible gardens not only provide healthy, sustainable and tasty kai, they also create greater food resiliency within our hapori.
