BRCT is a charitable trust formed out of the need to support local sustainability and climate change initiatives in a planned and structured way.  In 2009 BRCT partnered with social enterprise incubator the “Akina Foundation” to progress our flagship project, the Blueskin Wind Cluster Project. We are also busy with a wide variety of projects, events, reports, publications, submissions and building an improved Home Performance Advice (HPA) service.

Blueskin’s largest settlement Waitati was heavily flooded in April 2006. In September 2006 a community visioning exercise kicked off a community wide strategic thinking exercise, and the Waitati Edible Gardeners group (the Weggies) was set up. In 2007, the Blueskin Energy Project (first called the ‘Waitati Energy Project’) was established, and on the 1st of October 2008 the Blueskin Resilient Communities Trust was launched.
