If you’ve come looking for the E Tū project please sign in and look it up under Categories.

Here’s a short video to help you out.

Quick Guide on Using this site:

This site runs on Discourse software. You are part of a group (called E Tū) and inside a Category (also called E Tū).

It is part of a system for sharing information on climate change. It’s name is Kea Forum.

If you are used to having discussions inside Facebook you’ll notice this work in a similar way. Unlike FaceBook, this is intended to keep a focus on a few conversations (known as ‘Topics’ ) and to use them as places to store and share the important information we wish to share with each other.

Now: some quick bits of advice:

Getting back to the main E Tū page.

You can use the hamburger menu at the top right of your screen to bring up the categories and click on E Tū from there.
