We are everyday people with extraordinary skills and knowledge giving you wonderful experiences. Our work takes us is deep within Auckland and broadly throughout New Zealand.
Why are we called Social Nature Movement
Without places there are no people. Without people there are no practices. Look around now at what most people are doing. You notice people socialising in many ways, in nature or natural elements and moving themselves and their locations often. That phenomenon is what we do; engaging society with more nature and more movement. Our name enables a comprehensive approach found everywhere including everyone in every way.
The meaning behind social, nature and movement
Little is about what one now does when everyone is doing it. Because there is so much marketing and advertising telling you why something is so good, people have become doubtful and know so much about how good something is not. So, we founded ourselves with whom we do it and how; the true meanings of unique.
It’s not all about the bottom-line; we give back, generously.
- We incentivise and pay our staff to walk, run, cycle, kayak etc. to and from work.
- Portions of our profits go toward helping disadvantaged and disabled people enjoy their world and our services.
- We organise staff lunch meetings, supporting local businesses.
- Whenever we seldom use motorised transport, we consciously offset our environmental footprint through EKOS.
- We actively sustain and improve our places of work through restoration projects, leaving positive traces on this world.
Most of what – our slogan states – ‘we truly do’ considers people sharing, discovering and moving. Our idea is to combine our main spaces of home, school and work in our purpose to helping people live better lives, with nature, through movement. Moving away from traditional activities, we move towards hard-to-find experiences (which may include activities) extending into a journey through discovery. We recognise the enormous value of nature and human synergy where we deliver services that are always human-powered (non-motorised) in developing your skills, knowledge and experiences. Share with us. Explore with us. Move with us.
How do you define "nature?"
Everything we do exists within three fundamental physiological competencies:
Non-locomotion / balance (bodily movements),
Locomotion (moving ones position),
Manipulation (of objects).
