Daisies Early Education and Care Centre
won the 2011 Sustainable Business Net-
work s Central/Southern Emerging Small
and Medium Business Award last month.
The judges said they were impressed with
Daisies strong philosophy and clear vision,
and loved how the centre advocated for
recycling with the Wellington City Council.
It is clear that Daisies is passionate about
its business and its little and large clients
and have gone the extra mile with providing
reusable nappies for all children.
The centre s director Linda Meade was
pleased with the win.
Our aim is to be the best little early child-
hood education centre in New Zealand and
we view sustainability as an integral com-
ponent of the jigsaw puzzle that will help us
ultimately deliver on that aim.
Daisies is now a finalist in the National
Awards, which will be announced in Auck-
land on November 8.

By LOUISE THORNLEY
George Bernard Shaw said youth is wasted
on the young. But that was before Gener-
ation Zero -- a nationwide initiative that is
uniting younger voices.
Its leaders are not yet 30, but already they
talk about what the world could be like for
their grandchildren. The group wants more
young people to vote in this election.
The statistics do look bad. Of those aged
18 to 29 years, one in four are not enrolled to
vote. That is more than 177,000 young
people -- almost the population of Wellington
Lucinda Staniland, a 19-year-old arts
student, said all young people were Gener-
Whether you believe it or not, we are
going to see our society transform over time
to a zero-carbon world, she said.
Ms Staniland said she liked to focus on
People get all this information about how
things are not going well in the world. But
then the question is: what can I do about it?
Young people don t know what to do.
The Wellington Generation Zero group
held a recent event called Cheer Up Ralph!,
which 300 people attended.
Ralph Chapman is an environmental
studies professor at Victoria University,
said Ms Staniland. The event was about
cheering him up, because at times future
environmental scenarios can be depressing.
Ralph spoke first, and we d asked him to
speak about climate change and related
problems. He set out some huge challenges.
But then we had following speakers who
talked about what we can do. Afterwards
Ralph said he felt cheered up, so it was a
Ms Staniland said the Elect Who? cam-
paign was about informing young people
about voting options. Young people meet in
pairs with MPs because at first it is
intimidating to go and talk to a politician .
She has met with former Labour Cabinet
Minister Trevor Mallard and National candi-
date Paul Foster-Bell.
The politicians are easy to engage with,
because obviously they want you to vote for
them, so they re going to be nice to you.
The young people ask MPs how they plan
to improve New Zealand for future
generations. Their responses are placed on
Generation Zero s website, with video
excerpts of the the interviews.
This will be the first election in which Ms
Staniland will get to vote.
It s incredibly important for young people
to vote, because we have the opportunity to
create the future, she said. Bad things are
happening, but at the same time there are
things we can do about it.
See generationzero.org.nz/electwho for MPs'
responses to young people's questions.
You can still vote, even if you are not yet
enrolled, but you do need to enrol. You can
enrol until the day before election day, but
anyone enrolled after October 26 has to cast
a special declaration vote. You can do it using
Facebook -- see facebook.com/IVoteNZ. Other
ways to enrol are: freetext your name and
address to 3676; go online to
elections.org.nz; call 0800 36 76 56; or pick
up an enrolment form at a PostShop.
