We have a network of Community and Educational Branches across Aotearoa who are all working hard to educate, inspire and empower Kiwis to Keep New Zealand Beautiful.

Creating or joining a branch is a great way to meet new people, learn new skills and try something new, whilst at the same time keeping your little neck of New Zealand clean and green!

You can find  a list of all our local Community Branch here.

No branch in your area or at your school? Why not start one yourself?

Educational Branches

These are ECE’s, schools and tertiary institutions who are committed to sustainability and environmental stewardship, and who illustrate this in their key values.

Educational Branches are key to engaging our youth and future decision makers – through sustainability initiatives, events and participation in environmental educational programmes. Educators have the flexibility to focus on the initiatives and programmes that best fit in with their individual school’s environmental needs, student numbers and time available.

It’s completely free to start an Educational Branch, the only expectation is that the school makes an active commitment to:

  • Providing engaging opportunities for their students in environmental sustainability
  • Exploring ideas to reduce the school’s environmental footprint
  • Encouraging students to take responsibility and pride in caring for their local environment

You can find out more about our Educational branches, our programmes for schools and how we can support your school here.

Community Branches

These are groups of Keep New Zealand Beautiful members and volunteers who have an interest in keeping their towns tidy and their cities sustainable in a geographical area.

One of the main strengths of a Community Branch is their knowledge of their local community and the relationships they have with others who support them. Every branch is different, reflecting the surrounding community, members and individual strengths and time availability of its volunteers.

The only expectation of a Community Branch is that they hold a minimum of two public environmental events each year and that they submit a report at the end of each year to share with us what’s they’ve achieved.

You can find out more about becoming a Community Branch and all the ways we can lend a hand here.

Here's some great reasons to start a Community Branch

  • There’s not a Community Branch in your area, and
  • You want to make a difference in your little part of New Zealand
  • Your community has a need for environmental education and programmes
  • You want to help us to educate the next generation of Tidy Kiwis
  • You want to be part of a network of likeminded people and affiliated with an iconic organisation
  • You’d like help from our team to get your local initiatives off the ground – including marketing and PR help, your own local logo suite and social assets, giveaway prizes, sponsorship support and more!
  • You’re interested in special discounts on our merchandise, giveaway prizes and early bird prices to our events
