Million Metres is New Zealand’s only dedicated programme for connecting local waterway restoration projects with large scale funding and resources. Million Metres is an initiative of the Sustainable Business Network.
We’ve set out on a mission to restore at least one million metres of waterways across Aotearoa New Zealand.
Our purpose is to connect and resource people to accelerate quality waterway restoration, with the long term dream of seeing the people of Aotearoa united to restore the mauri (life force) of their precious waterways.
So far we’ve supported more than 70 waterway restoration projects across Aotearoa, fundraising over $2.5 million. This is enabling more than 74,000 metres of waterways to be replanted, with over half a million plants and trees.
