Airing time: Saturday at 4pm
Our mission is to inspire and support people, businesses, and communities to value the environment and act to prioritise sustainability. We would like to highlight our region's efforts in acting as guardians of the land, "Taranaki Tiaki Taiao," while weaving Te Reo Māori and Mātauranga within our conversations to help our wider community learn through a positive, educational, and uplifting lens.
Each week we interview a different guest who has an exciting local story to share that will help us to understand our natural environment and how we can all play a part in the future our whenua.
We also highlight a sustainable sponsor, a local business going above and beyond to lower their carbon footprint.
This show is created and made possible by Sustainable Taranaki. Sustainable Taranaki is a charitable trust that was started in 1992 in Inglewood by a group of progressive environmentalists. It now has grown and expanded its outreach but keeps the same vision of prioritizing our environment.
