for Our Beaches
To improve education and action on plastic pollution and related environmental issues
WHAT WE DO
P.S. Our Beaches was established in 2016 by 13 year-old E Wen Wong
Since then, we have provided platforms, learning opportunities, and spaces for young people across the country and internationally to make positive environmental change….. And we’re only just getting started!
As a registered New Zealand charity (Plastic Solution Charitable Trust), we plan and deliver by-youth for-youth events. Check out some of our current projects below!

PAST: PLASTIC AND SUSTAINABILITY TALKS
EnviroPAST: Plastic and Sustainability Talks is a two-day conference which brings passionate young people together and connects them with leading ocean and sustainability experts. P.S. Our Beaches has held three EnviroPAST conferences in Wellington and Christchurch, each comprising expert talks, interactive workshops, and practical action events.
CREATIVE, ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE WORKSHOPS
Eco Ako is a series of in-school workshops that combine environmental science and the creative arts. Ako, in te reo Māori, means both to teach and to learn. Through Eco Ako, we are teaching young people about ocean science while learning from the artworks that they produce. Artworks created in our workshops will form the Eco Ako anthology which we hope will spark intergenerational conversations about ocean issues.
