Sustainable Living: Member Councils

Member councils listed here - find yours!

The council pages linked from their names below provide information specific to member districts and cities across NZ.    You can also link to their pages from our map of NZ which shows cumulative registrations. (Member councils shown there are in green text, non-members in grey. We welcome additional members - see below!)

To get free access to the learning materials please follow the link below to your local council name and then register on the form linked from the head of that Council's page, or go direct to our registration page

Detailed contacts and weblinks for each member council area are available or will be updated soon (please let us know if any links are 'dead'). Once you have registered on this site, downloads of learning guides are accessed  on the page linked here  using the password sent to your registered email address.

If you live in NZ but your council's name is not yet listed (i.e. no link listed below) you can still register on the site in 2019 for acces to the materials, thanks to support from the Ministry for the Environment, but there will probably not be courses or classes running locally, and no local info page.  Perhaps you could help us to open discussion with your Council in 2019-2020, to see if they'd like to subscribe? 

If you are visiting from abroad, do consider becoming an individual subscriber, for which a NZ$39 fee is charged (to cover 12 months access). 

Promotional talks about the programme are offered at some conference and expo events around NZ - watch our Facebook page FutureLivingSkills for details of these, or contact our National Coordinator, Rhys Taylor, on 036938726


Which council covers your part of NZ ?

Links to current and prospective member council information pages are in green on this page, below. Use one of those, if it appears we do cover your part of NZ. We will ask for your home address and email when registering.

If you do not live in a member council area, check the two maps here, provided by Local Government NZ, to see which District Council name  likely covers your home area. Then you can let us know which District when you register.  If you wish, you could email to the National Coordinator: or telephone 03 693 8726 so that he can help you to invite your council to join Sustainable Living programme.  Annual budgets are planned well ahead for Council spending from financial yaers beginning July.

Even outside member districts, within Aotearoa NZ you can still register here

See also the menu on the page header, for our various free pages.

Thanks for visiting!
