During the forum, the key ideas, points, actions and outcomes/recommendations will be recorded. These will be transcribed and emailed to participants, audience, panelists and relevant local authorities to form the basis for the next stage of action.

Since 2007, Transition Town Otaki has worked on finding ways for a small community to grapple with change and to “think global, act local”.

As a community, we have to face ongoing options and management of waste. Our aim with this forum is to connect and educate, with the goal to inspire further development around the Reuse Recycle Reduce approach to waste, which is the stated desire of Kapiti Coast District Council reduce waste.

TTO is an independent non-political community group. During 2018 we are facilitating community forums involving leaders and experts in our region, in order to highlight the realities and important issues.
