About this event

*** Wellbeing Day Out – Workshop 12.00noon – Held in Lounge ***

Every year, we send more than 1.6 million tonnes of waste to landfill in Auckland - that's more than a tonne per person. Most of this waste could be used in more productive ways. Our waste has the potential to be a valuable resource for Aucklanders - creating jobs and boosting the economy, while allowing us to take better care of our environment. Auckland aspires to be zero-waste by 2040. Zero-waste is a long-term goal, but there's a lot we can do right now.

Learn how to reduce waste with Diana Prieto, WasteWise Community Engagement Advisor with Auckland Council's Waste Solutions unit. From her role as Coordinator The Green Project (with the Manutewhau Community Hub), Diana is skilled and experienced in: engaging and influencing a zero-waste lifestyle; delivering workshops to adults, children and communities about waste management (recycling, composting, minimising, and safe appropriate disposal); food waste management; and environmentally friendly products and organizations.

This is a Free Workshop. However capacity is limited, and hence we do require people to reserve their place with a free ticket from eventbrite. We will also use eventbrite to send you workshop reminders and advise you of any changing circumstances or changing requirements due to COVID-19 etc (including cancellation). If you find that you are unable to attend, please cancel your ticket so that someone else on the waitlist won't miss out. Thank you!

*****

Wellbeing Day Out is organised by Mt Eden Rotary and sponsored by the Albert-Eden Local Board (and Albert-Eden Neighbourhood Arts).

*****

Wellbeing Day Out Will Only Proceed At Venue Under ALERT LEVEL 1. For Mt Eden Rotary, the Event Organiser, the health, safety, and wellbeing of our community is our number one priority. We recognise that Events could be a transmission risk if COVID-19 community transmission re-emerges. We also recognise that alert level changes can occur with very short notice. Therefore, for your planning purposes, please note that we will ONLY proceed with the WELLBEING DAY OUT event on a physical face-to-face basis at the Mt Eden Village Centre under ALERT LEVEL 1.

*****

Alert Level 1 Best Practice Risk Management for the Health of Attendees. At Alert Level 1, we need to be ready in case COVID-19 reappears in our community. We will clean frequently touched surfaces with an appropriate cleaning solution to reduce transmission of germs in general. For your part, please:

1. Stay home if you are sick.

2. Register on entry via the NZ COVID Tracer App or via our manual registers.

3. Follow basic hygiene measures, ie, good hand hygiene (wash your hands with soap for 20 seconds and then dry thoroughly OR use the hand sanitiser which we will provide), good cough and sneeze etiquette (cough or sneeze into the crook of your elbow OR into a tissue which you dispose of in a bin and then clean your hands), avoid touching your face (clean your hands before touching your face) AND practice physical distancing (when physical distancing isn’t a requirement, you can still play it safe by continuing to keep a distance from people you do not know - use your judgement).

Thank you.
