Our mission is to build a sustainable future for children five generations ahead.
We strive in being a part of the innovative process for individuals and communities to step forward, naturally, and sustainably. We believe in a world where each and every one of us has a role to play in contributing towards a sustainable future, a world that is safe and prosperous for generations to come. Our goal is to be the lubricant, an organic network, that enables individuals to make big changes in their communities.
We believe that the best way to achieve this is by working closely with individuals who want to have a meaningful connection to their local communities and surrounding environment. The journey is long and definitely not simple, but we think long-lasting changes cannot be made without a network of strong-minded groups of people who share the same goals. As a part of our local community in Auckland ourselves, we feel very strongly about this. Through a variety of projects, we've met some incredible people, doing incredible things, one small step at a time. We've made friends and allies everywhere, helping us work closely with communities not just in Auckland but all across New Zealand. It's a lot of fun. It's also a lot of work! But we also know, we're taking strong steps in the right direction. We're not there yet, in fact, we probably never will be, because the world is ever-changing. We are constantly arriving. Thus, our story is about taking the steps we believe in, and always reevaluating what those beliefs we hold are.
What does SakuLab mean?
