Our Green Office Toitū team held an event this week to celebrate the office and raise awareness of its work.
The Green Office was launched last year to support students and staff to act on sustainability initiatives.
At yesterday’s event, we had the chance to meet the team working in the office.
We heard from project manager and student Joanna Wang about a reforestation project that students are contributing to in Waihi.
We also heard from student Hallie Duong about a FutureFit competition which staff and students took part in. The competition encouraged participants to set actions to reduce their carbon footprint.
Next, Matthew Tongohan, who will soon complete his study spoke about his time interning with the Green Office. He said he was glad to have been involved in something he was passionate about, and he knows the experience will help him in his future career.
The event ended with some games focused on sustainability.
