The flagship environmental education center was designed to serve as a public touchpoint. School students, community groups and businesses are taught how to become guardians of the natural environment.
Plastic pollution is a public health risk which specifically threatens the health of marine and coastline dwelling animals, the land, seawater and the people who harvest and consume seafood. Water in more than half of New Zealand’s rivers is not safe for drinking or swimming. Plastic pollution and marine debris is also a global issue which impacts the environment on a massive scale.
Sustainable Coastlines ran its first beach clean-up event in summer 2008. To date, Sustainable Coastlines have motivated 52,395 volunteers to remove 1,174,813 liters of rubbish from the coastlines and plant 45,432 native trees next to the waterways. Conservation education presentations have been delivered to 154,297 students nationwide. To maximize this impact, a place was needed where the public can learn and engage with this cause. The flagship environmental education center was designed to serve as a public touchpoint. School students, community groups and businesses will be taught how to become guardians of the natural environment. Built mostly from salvaged materials, the Flagship center is an example of practical and replicable solutions which promote sustainability.
The Flagship is New Zealand’s most sustainable building, and Auckland’s first 'Living Building'. Many aspects of the building are ground-breaking internationally. A key innovation of this project was harnessing prison labor for the building process, which considerably decreased the cost of building, and increased the social and economic benefits associated with upskilling prisoners. The CEO and co-founder visited Auckland Prison and delivered an educational presentation about Sustainable Coastlines. This was essential for motivating the prisoners to get on board with the project. The Flagship building itself is unique because it makes energy efficient technologies accessible. It showcases sustainable building solutions such as insulation, earth bricks, using salvaged materials, permaculture design principles and renewable energy principles.
