Superhome Movement

The Superhome Movement provides open source sharing of ideas to facilitate sustainable best practice. Its flagship campaign is the annual Exemplar Homes Tours.

The campaign has built awareness on the importance and benefits of building sustainably. The tours open environmentally-sound private homes to the public every weekend for a month. These homes have low or no power bills, collect and reuse water, and use solar energy to power the house. Visitors can speak directly with the designers, builders and suppliers to learn first hand about sustainable design.

Approximately 3,000 visitors attend the Exemplar Home Tours each year. In May 2017 alone, 16,000 people visited the website and the Facebook page had over 9,000 engagements.

Superhome Movement is a finalist in the Communicating for Change category of the 2017 NZI Sustainable Business Network Awards.
