Environment Network Manawatū Inc. (ENM) is a coordinating and networking organisation that encourages and fosters environmental and sustainability initiatives in the Manawatū. ENM was set up to improve communication, coordination, and cooperation between local environmental community groups, and has now grown to a network of 50 diverse groups, active in areas ranging from wildlife conservation to sustainable living.

Hands-on biodiversity and conservation groups include A Rocha, Friends of Ahimate Park, Pit Park people, Green Corridors, Ruahine Whio Protection Trust and the New Zealand Landcare Trust. Community resilience is fostered by groups like SuperGrans, TimeBank Manawatū, Green Hub, Plant to Plate, Te Roopu Oranga o Highbury, and Just Zilch. Groups such as Cycle Aware Manawatu, Forest & Bird, Living Streets and the Water Protection Society advocate for sustainability in legislation and policy. Clusters of member groups work on specific areas such as catchment-wide biodiversity, and food security.

ENM has a website, a Facebook page and monthly email newsletter, as well as a wealth of contacts, giving us the ability to publicize and promote local activities, and bring news and ideas from the network to a wider audience. We also work cooperatively with local and national government organizations, many of which are affiliate members of ENM.

Contact us or check out our website to find out about our member groups.


ENM is grateful to the Palmerston North City Council for a fee-for-service grant. We are also grateful to Lottery Community, the Positive Futures Trust, The Eastern and Central Community Trust, the Palmerston North City Environmental Trust and COGS funding.
