Purpose & Structure

Charitable Purpose

Established in April 2009, the Sustainable Coastlines Charitable Trust is a multi award-winning New Zealand charity that exists to connect people to nature and inspire change. Our long-term vision is for restored mauri for our moana and our mission is to support communities around Aotearoa to prevent litter and restore waterways. The key outcomes we strive for are beautiful beaches / oneone kōrekoreko, healthy waters / waiora and inspired people / tāngata whakaohooho. With the scale of our vision and these outcomes, we cannot achieve this work alone. We deliver and support large-scale clean-up events, educational programmes, public awareness campaigns, catchment-based freshwater restoration and citizen science environmental monitoring activities. We also enable others by supporting ‘Do It Yourself ’ efforts nationwide. Sustainable Coastlines is strictly apolitical and focuses on solutions for people of all ages, backgrounds and sectors.
