Dear <>,

We are writing to you to introduce STENZ, and to seek some engagement.

STENZ is a working group dedicated to the United Nations Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (UNDESD) across all tertiary education in New Zealand

STENZ aims to provide a whole-of-sector approach to Education for Sustainability. It is made up of people who have leadership roles in the sector and provides a focal point for their work. As such, STENZ has an advocacy, championing and networking role that both leverages off, and energises the work within individual institutions. It provides an opportunity for dialogue and collaboration, creating linkages for institutions working in similar spaces.

(If already someone here then ...)

Confirmation that they are appropriate representative.


We would welcome a representative from your institution, one who can contribute to one of our three education for sustainability work streams. These are:

Advocacy and liaison: engagement with stakeholders to raise awareness of new graduate attributes required for meeting future global changes


Capability building:

(end if)

Sustainability is becoming increasingly important in all sectors of the economy and society. It is therefore critical that every graduate can understand the principles, values, and practices of strong sustainability. We are working to achieve this by the end of the UNDESD. You can follow progress on our wiki:

We look forward to hearing from you and building stronger relationships. One of our core group would be happy to meet with you or your staff if you wish.
