Throughout 2017 we were contracted by Auckland Council for the rollout of the new waste management system in Manukau. The ‘Bin the Bag’ community engagement campaign was created to inform the public of the new system, help them understand the reasons behind the changes and after the new bins had been delivered, ease the transition process.
We designed, managed and facilitated an engagement setup of educational, playful games and activities that we ran at festivals, markets and community events. Working closely with local waste champions, we were able to embrace their knowledge and talents to connect in meaningful ways with the public.
As a result, we were able to help a major change process run as smoothly as possible and show that a creative, playful approach alongside local expertise can have a wide-reaching impact.
