Who We Are

Junky Monkeys was conceived and developed by Ann Langis while Director of Conscious Kids Devonport. With a professional background in teaching and a personal passion for the zero waste movement, Ann was inspired by UK-based play pods and keen to develop a loose-parts programme for tamariki in Aotearoa. With the enthusiastic support of Jane Walters, former Director of Waste Education at the Devonport Recycling Centre, they began amassing a stockpile of interesting junk items and ran the first trial programmes at local primary schools and community events in autumn 2018.

After the success of those initial sessions, Ann and Conscious Kids Co-Directors Maria Mariotti and Rita Pontes rolled out the programme across Auckland, reaching thousands of children at schools and community events such as Auckland Council’s ‘Out and About’ 2020 summer series. 

Junky Monkeys is now all grown up and ready to move onto it’s next challenge, so we have become an independent organisation, currently in the process of securing charitable status. Led by Ann and fellow passionate educator Kate Webber, we are keen to partner with other change makers in education, business and public service to grow the Junky Monkeys impact and reach.
