hubZERO is another tree in the garden where Rākau Tautoko lives…
The backbone organisation for hubZERO is Rākau Tautoko. There are two branches of work;
– Building up capability for Maungakiekie-Tāmaki community members that are interested in creating Waste Based Social Enterprises and encouraging upcycling and waste reduction through events. Rākau Tautoko is working alongside Tāmaki WRAP who is fund holding for this branch, with thanks to Maungakiekie-Tāmaki Local Board.
– Growing Waste Based Social Enterprises at our site, on Cavendish Drive, Manukau. With support from Foundation North, we are growing products and services within Material, Wood and Craft work. Our primary objective for 2020 is to grow financial and membership sustainability.
hubZERO focus is to build up social enterprises that prevent waste from ending up in landfill and creating new, upcycled products and services from waste.
hubZERO supports the growth of waste-based social enterprises to build up their capacity and capability to create good quality products or services to divert landfill, from conception, to prototype, to end product.
Along the way, we build up self esteem and confidence, connect like-minded people, provide opportunities for people to learn and support the development of sustainable structures for each groups own style of working. We support all different types of waste based social enterprises – from seedling ideas right through to strong organisations.
