Here is a message Sue received from the organiser of this event:
Thank you so much for making Ecoexpo New Zealand's inaugural event such a success. We were quite overwhelmed to see so many children take part in The Wearable Art show and also the quality of the garments, you really were the stars of the weekend. We are already planning the next event and the creative juices are flowing once again to see how we can make the next one even more spectacular. I will be in touch with you when those thoughts have been formalised. I would love the opportunity to come and visit your school and see some of the other initiatives you have under taken with regards to "saving our planet".
We have now calculated that slightly more than 4,000 people attended the Expo over the 2 days. And from the information we gathered through our survey we now know that over 90% of the survey respondents felt the event was either very good or good and that 74% have said they would attend the next Eco Expo.
We will have a series of photo's of the Expo appearing on our website shortly, also we are just getting some copies of The Wearable Art show made - they are not professional, Kim videoed it for our personal record but I will get a copy to you when they are completed.
Thank you once again Sue, you must be very proud of your students.
For the EcoExpo New Zealand Team of Kim, Anita, Glen and Deryn.
