Update: January 2021
The initial allocation for 200,000 trees is now fully subscribed, but groups and projects are still invited to register their interest in securing funding support through the Trust, as we expect to announce new funding availability in the near future. By registering your interest with CVNZ [Email Here], you can ensure that you are kept informed as new funds become available.
We aim to help create a fully sustainable Aotearoa New Zealand, and to tackle climate change by planting native ecosystems in perpetuity in every community in the nation.
Rotary in New Zealand has a history of environmental projects
"For example, the Rotary Club of Pakuranga established Trees for Survival over 25 years ago to encourage school children to enjoy the rewards of growing and planting native trees and shrubs. Almost 100,000 shrubs and trees are being grown in plant growing units in schools and being planted out each year. Last year 4079 students were involved.
The opportunities that our partnerships will give us to magnify our mutual work will make our country a better place and we thank you for joining with us.
Bill Boyd. President, Rotary International 2006/2007
