Sustainable Living: Member Councils

Member councils listed here - find yours!

The member council pages, linked from their names below, provide information specific to districts and cities across NZ that use this programme.    You can also link to their pages from our map of NZ which shows cumulative website registrations. (Member councils shown there are in green text, non-members in grey. We welcome additional member councils - 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 you can go direct to our quick registration page.   Don't forget to select your district or city of NZ, also.

Detailed contacts and weblinks are available for each member council area or will be updated soon (please let us know by emil to rhys (at) if any of the offered web links fail).  Once you have registered once on this site, the learning guides are accessed on the page linked here 

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

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

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 03 6938726  


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:  rhys (at) or telephone 03 693 8726 so that he can help by inviting your council to join Sustainable Living programme.  Annual budgets are planned well ahead, for Council spending each financial year beginning July.

So, even outside member districts, within Aotearoa NZ you can still register free here.
