Million Metres Streams Project
Million Metres Streams Project (Million Metres) is a project of the Sustainable Business Network (SBN). It is a partnership with the Department of Conservation. Its mission is to assist the planting of one million metres of New Zealand waterway with native plants and trees.
We help landowners and local groups set up and run crowdfunding campaigns for their riparian planting projects. Suitable projects are showcased on the Million Metres crowdfunding website. People learn about these projects and donate to them. We also promote the projects through media and on social media.
We add to our impact by encouraging businesses to partner with and donate to the projects on the site. This attracts support from the 550 SBN member businesses and the wider business community.
If you would like to raise money for your own projects with us, please get in touch.
Million Metres is made possible with support from the Department of Conservation and Cora.
We rely on generous sponsorship and in-kind donations from our supporters. See our website for more detail: http://millionmetres.org.nz/about-us/our-supporters/
