Through the iconic “Keep New Zealand Beautiful” brand, and with the help of many different volunteers, Keep Hutt Valley Beautiful plans, undertakes, administers, leads and publicizes environmental beautification projects and events to improve and beautify the environment and the appearance of the Hutt Valley in general.
The Trusts activities are a way to encourage engagement and participation from all parts of the community and strengthen the connections between mana whenua and manuhiri. The ultimate goal is to help nurture a sense of mana and encourage a pathway to kaitiakitanga within our community
The Trust relies entirely on the goodwill of donors and volunteers. We are keen to broaden our base, to raise the Trusts profile, heighten the general publics awareness of our work and to encourage all members of our diverse community to participate in and connect with our projects.
Our aim is to create a positive impact in changing the attitudes and behaviour of both visitors and residents of The Hutt Valley so that acts such as the discarding of rubbish, or undertaking graffiti become socially unacceptable. We want to encourage a responsible community attitude towards the use of resources and the management of the environment.
