EnviroKids is a group created by Christchurch’s Envirohub to get more Kiwi kids connected with their surroundings.
Envirohub is the parent organisation with a network of over 40 groups working throughout Canterbury, and Miller saw a lot of the groups were stretched to their limit and needed extra help.
She also wanted to make children aware of the issues impacting nature and educate them on how they can help.
Groups within the Envirohub network will have the opportunity to teach the children that attend, or give resources to Envirokids facilitator Sarah Goldberg to teach them about what work they’re currently doing in the community.
"Connecting children to the environment and community and the community to children," Goldberg said.
From that lesson, the children will become aware of various issues affecting the area around them and be given practical ways to help with what they have.
Goldberg stressed the club needed to be accessible to all.
She said children often felt overwhelmed by issues like climate change and felt there was not a lot they could do about it.
Goldberg wants to give children that agency and teach them how to become Kaitiaki (guardians) over the land in whatever way they can.
