Generation Zero is a non-partisan, youth-led climate organisation that champions solutions towards a carbon neutral Aotearoa.
We campaign for smarter transport, liveable cities and independence from fossil fuels by lobbying government, business and other actors to advance climate change action.
It's time for New Zealand to step up.
Please work together to develop, fund and implement a plan to install protected cycle lanes along the length of Karangahape Road.
Skypath has proved extremely popular, showing that a liveable-low carbon city is something that almost all Aucklanders are passionate about, giving us reason to be optimistic about the future of Auckland.
