About the group

Nelson Repair Cafe

The Nelson Tasman Climate Forum, founded in April 2020, is a large group of committed individuals in the top of South Island who are working together to tackle all aspects of climate change.  They are "doing" first rather than waiting for national or local legislation to make things happen.  The forum includes groups on food and water resilience, energy, waste and resources, transport etc.  The Forum's Repair Cafe has been operating since November 2020, and involves a wide range of individuals and now also local groups such as the MeNZshed,  plus help from the Nelson Council's Older Person's Strategy group volunteers etc.
