Thank you for your positive response. As someone intimately involved with environmental education I can find several areas for improvement, but good to know your main impression was positive.

For example, Iwi (or tribes) are concerned about the condition of the Waiwhetu Stream in Lower Hutt. For context, this 2011 article may interest you — http://www.stuff.co.nz/dominion-post/news/5035910/Hutt-River-clogged-with-ooze-and-toxic-algae. Terry Puketapu is referenced at the end of the article. I interviewed Terry in 2003. At the time, he shared that he reviewed the U.S. EPA website, including sections on environmental justice. Second, I was reminded about environmental justice when I read public health statistics in reports and local newspapers. As I recall, asthma in young children was a major concern.

Mr. Eley do you see similar EJ problems internationally in New Zeland?

Your article gives me hope.
