Dear neighbours,

Please meet Alyce Read of Nelson, who uses her houseplant collection to connect with others and help them overcome mental health challenges. "You wouldn’t take a plant and put it in a dark corner and fail to water it and expect it to thrive. So we should look at ourselves that way," she says. "If we are not thriving in the way that we would wish, it might not be any fault of ours, it might be the conditions that we are under."

Recycle, reuse, relove

Coral Stewart from Red Cross Shop Blenheim

One of the great things about second hand shopping is the not knowing what your actually looking for until something finds you , then finding a completely different use for it. Half the fun is in the recreating.

All it takes is a kind gesture to change someone’s day. From giving flowers to a neighbour ‘just because’ to paying it forward in line at a cafe - this month we’re encouraging our members and supporters to make New Zealand a better place one random act of kindness at a time.

The options for doing so are endless! Being kind doesn’t have to cost a thing, after all a smile is free. For those who want to go the extra mile, here’s some other ideas: take a gift over to new neighbours and introduce yourself, build a free community library for your street, buy extra kai at the grocery store to donate to a food bank, bring treats into work for colleagues, send an encouraging text to someone who needs it, let a car into the traffic ahead of you, write positive messages in chalk on sidewalks around your neighbourhood, or surprise loved ones with a visit.

Want to share your thoughts? Let us know how you’re spreading kindness this month by tagging us in your social media posts or emailing us your photos, videos, or experiences to:

Kiwi Can can go beyond a students time at Primary School 💚

Check out what Head of Memberships at Diversity Works NZ, Ola Ioane has to say about his experience with Kiwi Can!

"I have a deeply personal connection to Graeme Dingle Foundation as I was blessed to be a child in your youth development programmes many years ago. For this, I extend a massive fa’afetai lava (thank you!). Will always be super grateful for the learning and development from your programme. I was part of Kiwi Can through Koru School. My Kiwi Can Leader was an awesome human named Ina (I think that’s his name). Funny – I don’t remember much about primary school but I definitely remember our Kiwi Can sessions."

Should Emano St be changed to its correct name of Te Manu St?

Carly Gooch Reporter from The Nelson Mail

Imagine if Stoke was actually meant to be St Oak, or Rich Mound, had been misheard as Richmond, would you like it changed to its correct name? Formerly known as Emano East Reserve, it's been given its correct Māori name of Te Manu Reserve - so should Emano St be changed?

Low levels of digital literacy among staff is a challenge facing many manufacturing businesses, and strengthening those skills is not only essential to meet rapid technological changes in the workplace, it’s vital to increasing productivity.

“As technology progresses and we move further into Industry 4.0, workers must be upskilled to keep pace with new systems and processes, especially older employees who are not digital natives, but who have invaluable experience in their fields,” says Competenz Sector Manager Jahn Vannisselroy

Competenz has developed a new micro-credential to meet the demands brought about by Industry 4.0.
