Lincoln Envirotown Trust
Taking Responsibility for a Sustainable Future
Our vision is for long-term environmental, social, economic and
cultural sustainability in Selwyn District.
The idea of Lincoln Envirotown first came up in April 2005 from Dr Sue Jarvis and Prof. Ian Spellerberg. The idea took root, and by July 2006 the Trust had been created and officially launched.
Lincoln Envirotown Trust started out with a grant from the Sustainable Management Fund, which allowed it to start a year’s worth of various projects, events and workshops. These projects included the State of the Town report, planting native vegetation, educational workshops and courses for adults and children, public and private consultation sessions, a sustainability centre, a local Zero Waste Street Challenge, and more.
The Trust will continue being active in promoting sustainable actions, providing education for sustainability, as well as encouraging and helping other communities to progress towards sustainability.
