WAO Summit

This week Wanaka has hosted the WAO Summit as part of the 2022 Festival for Sustaintability.

The Wanaka Community Workshop was an active participant in the Festival.

The Workshop hosted a cycle maintenance event early in October.

During the Summit the Workshop hosted a session focussed upon reducing waste resulting from construction.

Members of the MenShed built a board for a display by the Queenstown Lakes District Council at the Summit. The board was a specially designed version of a corn hole game board – a design which highlighted means we can all adopt to reduce carbon emissions.

Finally members shared their experience and learnings thus far. The Wanaka Community Workshop is new – it has existed for around 18 months.

It’s great to be part of this initiative. Sharing the experience of others working across our community is both beneficial and uplifting.
