Celsias gives Kiwis the ability to take action on climate change and build a community-led response. In addition to a daily blog, the site features a variety of tools to share information, form discussions, start projects and swap success stories.
According to Nielsen Media Research, 80 per cent of small business execs want to know how to become more sustainable but only 20 per cent know where to find this information. And 52 per cent of Kiwis want to know what companies are making positive changes to society or the environment. Now you know where to go!
Celsias.com was formed three years ago by Marlborough clean tech entrepreneur Nick Gerritsen and former Christchurch Mayor Vicki Buck. Thousands of individuals and more than 200 companies have registered on the site.
The NZ site is accompanied by a bi-annual Celsias magazine, produced by HB Media.
While the majority of political messages focus on rousing an individual’s sense of civic and democratic duty (such as Rock the Vote), Vice NZ is taking a slightly different route with its latest partnership with the Electoral Commission called ‘We Are New Zealand’.
