As the Paris climate talks reach their crucial final days, international experts have rated the New Zealand Government’s target as being at the bottom of the pack, and embarrassingly, put us in the “inadequate” category. The New Zealand Government effectively has no policies in place that will reduce emissions, and plenty in place that will make things worse.
Individuals like you, businesses owners, and all types of organisations around the country are taking real climate action and making change, yet our Government is failing us, and failing the world.
Back in June, a diverse bunch of organisations got together and committed to making the People’s Climate March as big as possible in New Zealand. Fast forward five months and you and I were amongst over 32,000 kiwis who took to the streets in events around the country.
These organisations are leading the way with real climate solutions and support for those already impacted by the effects of climate change around the Pacific. You can join them and take real climate action by clicking any of the links below:
