Building Waiheke's community inventory

Our current focus

We need your community initiatives! Transition Waiheke is developing a community inventory of a wide range of Waiheke initiatives which strengthen our community. Having an inventory provides people with the opportunity to join initiatives and enables groups to network with others who have similar goals. The inventory may also reveal community resources which groups can draw on to support their work.

We would like to get your community initiative on the inventory. » Read more
