Working alongside Auckland Council Waste Solution Team, Jasmine Hope and Tara Moala created a focus group series for South Auckland community members to learn about the Pay As You Throw (PAYT) System.
Part of our focus groups, we helped participants to learn about the different waste systems, and then share their thoughts on what they would like to see in their communities. We combined learning, with gathering data.
In August 2021, the largest COVID19 Lockdown began in Aotearoa history, and we had only just set up our series with local South Auckland Manaaki Hosts. so we pivoted to online focus groups, and a digital survey that people could complete and share their thoughts. Part of that survey, we created a video to help participants to still learn what PAYT all about.
