Life in lockdown prompted many of us to consider what’s really essential in our lives; which adaptations we might keep, and what we can do without. Stuff’s second issue of The Forever Project magazine – out today – explores how New Zealand can bounce back from Covid-19 in a climate-friendly way.
The Forever Project is the new home for New Zealand’s most ambitious environmental reporting and climate coverage. It includes daily reporting across all of Stuff’s platforms, as well as the carbon-neutral, quarterly print publication.
Each new issue features a cover illustration from a different New Zealand artist; trailblazers making a sustainable difference; practical, green travel tips; and impactful household advice.
Today’s issue explores transforming transport as a key lever for reducing our carbon emissions, how a ‘passive’ house revolution and building code changes could help our health and the climate, and what lockdown taught us about living low-carbon. The Green Travel column highlights five local eco-tourism experiences and comedian Tom Sainsbury introduces Carol, a newly passionate climate change advocate.
Editor Eloise Gibson says the initiative has attracted a large audience and demonstrates a strong appetite for reporting of this kind. “We launched the first issue of The Forever Project in the first week of lockdown and in spite of Covid-19 dominating the news, our climate change stories have been extremely well received.”
“As New Zealand’s largest media organisation we have a responsibility to educate and inform our communities about these important issues,” adds Gibson.
“It’s about striking the balance between shining the light on the climate crisis, but doing it in a way that’s relevant and hopeful and that promotes change.”
The Forever Project is included free in today’s The Dominion Post, Waikato Times, The Press and this weekend’s Sunday Star-Times. Grab a copy or visit www.foreverproject.co.nz.
