The purpose of this grant is to support community initiatives that align with priorities of both Palmerston North City Council and ENM to improve environmental outcomes for the city.  Grants will be available to projects taking place within Palmerston North's City boundaries, with funding priorities each year based on PNCC’s Eco-City Strategy priorities, and any identified priorities of the network.
One of ENM’s fundamental values is working together – great things happen when people are connected. Groups meet and collaborate, and two subnetworks have formed under the ENM umbrella – the Biodiversity Cluster and the Food Action Network. Collaboration with other organizations can boost your project’s chances of success. This page has resources on collaboration, written by our volunteers and member groups.
The Health and Safety at Work Act came into effect in 2016. This legislation does not have a big impact on all-voluntary organisations, but the human bottom line remains the same: good planning can improve the health and safety of our volunteers. On this page you can find materials developed by ENM and some of its member groups, along with other external organisations. Governance boards and volunteer managers might find these materials helpful in improving their practices.
