The Centre for Environmental Justice is a home for people fighting for environmental justice in the Manawatu-Whanganui region, and NZ.
The Centre for Environmental Justice is a home for people fighting for environmental justice in the Manawatu-Whanganui region, and New Zealand. Through science, policy and advocacy, we aim to expose environmental injustice, confront privilege and power structures that are or have been unjust and, where harm to people and place has been done, ask those responsible for it to take responsibility.
You can read more about who we are, and the Centre's priorities and plans, on our webpage at www.ecojustice.nz.
Our voice is for all of society, not a select few; for the natural world, that has as much right for existence as anyone; and for future generations.
Your support for us in this start-up phase will cover basic start-up costs, and the cost of the considerable time involved to make sure that the Centre is well set up and securely funded, to be able to continue. There is a lot to do to establish the Centre and turn it into more than a good idea, and we can't do it without your help.
Our main cost is the investment of time, to get things right. We have been able to keep basic start-up costs and overheads to a minimum, and this will continue. Your donation will help to recover those initial costs, and help us to take the next steps forward. Currently, we have no other means of support.
One of our first priorities is to formally establish the Centre for Environmental Justice as a not-for-profit registered charity, that is working for charitable purposes; and to find secure long-term funding sources.
However, please note: we are not currently a registered charity, there is a process to go through first.
